Hallo Andreas,

I filed already this bug but it seems nobody knows how to tackle
this: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=639470

So, I'd like to do some bisecting between 2.6.34 and 2.6.36 to figure
out which commit broke this.

What is the best way doing this? Trying bisection of Linus' tree or
using our kernel git repository?

I would use Linus' tree, I suspect it will be more bisectable than ours.

Is there any good documentation
that will guide me through this?

The git-bisect manual page as a complete tutorial guiding you step by
step. Even I was able to understand it ;)
