I'm not able to understand the question.  I'm not sure why you're
creating branches from existing tags.  You can easily do:

  $ git bisect start @ v3.10-rc7

(@ is a synonym for HEAD in the latest git)

You can also fetch all tags:

  $ git fetch --tags

and decide what to do with them later:

  $ git merge next-20130628

In the process, next-20130628 hasn't changed: you can still use it as a
bisect endpoint.
