This means you're doing it wrong. If there are dependencies between
patches, then they *must* all be in the same tree. You cannot depend
on the order that branches get merged because it breaks bisecting.

Or, to put it another way, every branch must compile on it's own
without needing to be merged into mainline or linux-next first.

There are two ways to handle this. The easiest is to commit all the
patches to a single branch. Then there is guaranteed to be no
problems. However, if the patches really need to be split up between
several branches, then the way to handle it is to put the prerequisite
patches into a new clean branch, and then merge that branch into each
tree that needs the prerequisite. That way every single tree includes
the required commit without committing it more than once or breaking
bisectability.
