well ... your git bisection log does look suspiciously 'good', so
something is wrong thee i think :-(

the chance to get 8 'good' bisection points in a row is 1:256. OTOH, the
freshest x86 patches are always at the 'end' of the queue - which are
also the ones most likely to break anything.

Are you sure the x86/base point is indeed 'good'? You can check it via:

git-checkout -b tmp x86/base

and build+boot it.
