I think Sanjoy is saying that they _were_ tested, and suspects
that bisect didn't leave the right versions of the files in the
work tree, so what was compiled and tested were not what bisect
wanted to get tested.  This is theory #2 in Sanjoy's post:

I find this explanation quite plausible, in case it is all my
fault and I apologize for wasting kernel developers' time.
