rc7-mm1 is hardly worth bothering with. Quite a few really bad ones have
now been fixed and I'll try to get rc7-mm2 out within the next 12 hours (I
assume a 76-hour debug session won't be needed this time).

But I don't think the sysfs changes in Greg's tree have been updated, so
things will probably still fail in that area. A suitable bisection
starting pair would be around gregkh-driver-*
