    I've bisected through Linus' tree more than once - ISTR that there was
    some special funkiness in dealing with trying to bisect through linux-next
    because the tree gets redone every night.

    If it *was* as easy as Linus's tree to bisect, I'd go ahead and do it.

    Wow. I never *thought* to look for it there, and neither did my userspace :)
