For a kernel bisection, it can also be beneficial to
first disable all
the device drivers you don't need. It will take you a few minutes before
starting the first build, but will save you a lot more than that for
each subsequent build. Everything that can be disabled at the menu level
is very profitable to disable: MTD, Parallel Port, NVMe, RAID/LVM, SPI,
Hardware Monitoring, Watchdog Timer, Multimedia, Sound, Ultra Wideband,
MMC, LED, EDAC, Userspace I/O, Virtualization, Staging Drivers, PWM,
Thunderbolt, NVDIMM... As long as you know your system boots without
them and it's not what you are bisecting, of course.
You can also try make localmodconfig, which does this for you.
