eventually not be able to tell the first bad among a bad and one or
more "skip"ped commits.
You can even skip a range of commits, instead of just one commit,
using the "'<commit1>'..'<commit2>'" notation. For example:
$ git bisect skip v2.5..v2.6
would mean that no commit between `v2.5` excluded and `v2.6` included
can be tested.
Note that if you want to also skip the first commit of a range you can
use something like:
$ git bisect skip v2.5 v2.5..v2.6
and the commit pointed to by `v2.5` will be skipped too.
