I was busy with this bisecting, but no luck :( For me, it's totally myserious
how this bisect works, it always provided commits which result in 2.6.37-rcX
kernels with a "+" sign at the end. That's odd. Since 2.6.37 _IS_ good, so
kernels before that (its rc releases) should be ok and should not even asked by
git on bisecting .... Anyway even with my doubts I do all the process and it
comes up with: 

f70f5b9dc74ca7d0a64c4ead3fb28da09dc1b234 is the first bad commit

However compiling and trying that kernel works, so it's not bad: I can't
understand. And it seems to be a 2.6.37-rc5+ kernel according to uname -a, so
how can it be the first bad commit when I started the bisecting process with:

git bisect start
git bisect bad v2.6.38
git bisect good v2.6.37

Bisect log:
