Why don't you just do 'git bisect skip' if the commit doesn't have a tag?

That would probably involve listing the wanted tags:
% git log --topo-order --simplify-by-decoration --decorate --oneline
And then generating the commits:
% git cat-file -p v1.8.3 > commit
# modify commit's parent
% git hash-object -w < commit
