You seem to be talking of subtly different things Andi and you, and

You say "don't rebase on the most recent kernel version". Andi seems
to accept that going forwards. You say "use topic branches that are
based on whatever kernel version you had at the time, I'll do the
merge". That's ok too. His remaining question is "what do I do with
broken patches _in_the_topic_branch_?". He wants to
amend/merge/split/reorder within the topic branch so that the branch
itself is bisectable. So what should be done there?
