I was hoping that git would be more intelligent than that. Is there a way
to simply bisect down one side of a merge?

The slow boot is probably fixed by 4936a3b90d79dd8775c6ac23c2cf2dcebe29abde.
A trivial patch you can apply on each step is:

diff --git a/arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c b/arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c
index 33dbcc4..88f3b6c 100644
--- a/arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c

- hpet_freq = FSEC_PER_NSEC * NSEC_PER_SEC;
