No, I didn't know, and quirky kernel docs don't know either (yet another
item I've got to add to my update commits) [and
bisect man obviously doesn't mention it either]. Hrmm, README does
explain it. Ought to have managed to read at least the first batch
of rough introductory docs parts in full, mayhaps? :%

Still, something to be referenced in a (currently very terse) more suitable
doc for bisection (i.e. BUG-HUNTING).

Thanks two tons for the life-saver! :)

Current candidates remaining (45 revisions, 6 steps,
git bisect visualize --oneline),
for those who might already want to know it at this moment
(and yes, the last one was bad, so seems I'm on track):
