OK, *that* got the bisect running. However, after a few bisections, things
are getting weird...

(Note - I haven't done a git pull or update for a week and a bit, so the tree is
as of 03/14 or so...)

'git bisect log' reports:

At this point, 'git bisect visualize' shows 9 commits left to bisect through,
and all are dated 03/10 or later. However, since 25-rc3-mm1 had the problem,
it had to be something in-tree as of 03/05.

Is it possible that the problem code was in the git-x86 tree when Andrew
pulled for -rc3-mm1 and -rc5-mm1, but had been reverted by the time I grabbed
the tree, so the /x86/base' was in fact *good* by that point?
