Yeah, you are right, currently the only way would be to specify all
under ./linux except the particular directory you want to exclude.
It might indeed be useful to have a way to exclude some directories or files.
In practice though, as git bisect is a kind of binary search, if what
you want to exclude is exclusively touched by half the commits, it
will only add one more bisection step if you don't exclude it.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
