You shouldn't bisect blindly.
Looking at the series file
megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch is a fix against
megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch, so if the bisection
lands you on megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller.patch then
obviously one should apply
megaraid_sas-add-support-for-zcr-controller-fix.patch by hand as well.
You'll often find great streams of similarly-named contiguous patches - you
should apply either all of them or none of them. Otherwise you're testing
a known-to-be-broken kernel which has an already-available fix ;)
describes the bisection technique I use.
If you're using git-bisect, well, try to have a nice day anyway.

Would be great, thanks.
