Both of these have the problem that kernel configurations are wildly variable and capable of
enormous variation. This would only be practical for a limited set of distro-compiled kernels
(thus with known .configs), but it might work for them, and that would still be quite useful
(I guess it's more likely that someone who can build their own kernel can bisect it for bugs
