This might be of help
Elliott linked it in his previous mail.

It explains the problem fairly well.

Short version:
Right now every new kernel version creates a new kernel config file as a copy of the old one which doesn't preserve the git history which hinders the usage of git blame.

git bisect should still work fairly well even without the change.
