Unless someone else would come up with better idea, you can always do:

	git bisect start
	git bisect bad 44e6f84e3597905816a0440e7218d2ed072120da
	git bisect start 741b2252a5e14d6c60a913c77a6099abe73a854a
		Bisecting: 2021 revisions left to test after this
		[739cafd316235fc55463849e80710f2ca308b9ae] [XFS] fix PBF_NONE handling
	git bisect good		# if it boots
	git bisect bad		# if it doesn't

"2021" suggests that it would take 10 or so recompiles to identify bad
