Commits that can be bisected is very appreciated.  I have hit way too
many commits in qemu that cause build failures, segfaults, etc, and just
generally make bisecting a major pain.

The segfaults I can accept as things that happen (although not checking
pointers is kind of sloppy coding, but may run slightly faster when it
is not segfaulting).  Code that doesn't build on the other hand should
never have been checked in.
