Interesting idea. But what works in one direction might not necessarily work
the other way round. Personally, I'd rather like to be on the safe side here.
So before doing this it might be wise to here what Ted Tso thinks about it,
just IMO.

And I don't think that bisecting just fs/ext4 would be misleading. If we find a
bad commit there, Ted and others will look at it anyway and will see whether
this alone explains the problems or whether an interaction with something else
would be necessary to make sense of it.
