skip broken commits with git-bisect

This was found somewhere on LKML.

You can do “git bisect skip” to make git know that some particular commit
is not a commit you can test, and you can also move away from a whole
problematic region to another area by doing

git bisect visualize

to bring up a graphical gitk view of what all you have left to bisect,
pick a good point (still reasonably close to the middle) there, and do

git reset --hard

and try that kernel instead of the one git bisect suggested.
