When I was bisecting a recent defect which required a dozen or so recompiles + hitting lots of compile failures at each bisect, I just edited v4l/.myconfig, setting everything to ":= n" except those modules required by the dvb card I was testing as confirmed by the modules.dep file. I expect this method is not foolproof due to the non-obvious dependencies Devin mentions above, but it worked for me and sped the process up by an order of magnitude.
