This is not a new issue, but duplication of the above and the same
set of PATH_FUNC in builtin/bisect-helper.c looks ugly.  We may want
to do something about it after this topic is done.

"static int", no?  I do not think we need to be able to call this
from anywhere outside this file.

So this won't be needed, right?

Why do we need to pass this new parameter from cmd_bisect__helper(),
when we are going to parse it out of argv/argc outselves anyway?

I suspect that you would ask the same question to whoever added
no_checkout to this thing, and I wouldn't be surprised if we end up
removing both of these parameters (and parsing of the options inside
cmd_bisect__helper()) after thinking about them, but anyway, let's
read on.

'introduced'?

Let's not revert back to ancient line-folding style.  The next test
you can see in the postimage, i.e.

	test_expect_success 'title in single quote' '
		the first command &&
		the second command &&
		...
		the last command
	'

is what we want to mimic.

> +     chmod +x test_script.sh &&

So, we want to say "bad" if $? is 0, i.e. the file 'hello' has a
string "line" in it and "good" if $? is not 0, i.e. the file 'hello'
does not have such a line?

A few things:

 - Use "write_script" to abstract away platform-specific details
   such as which $SHELL_PATH to use on "#!" line, and "chmod +x".

 - There is no SP between a redirection operator and its target
   file.

i.e. Ssomething like this instead of the above four lines:

	write_script test_script.sh <<-\EOF
	! grep line hello >/dev/null
	EOF

Style: no SP between '>' and its target file.

The final blame must lie on a commit on the first-parent chain,
which this test tries to ensure, but I wonder if it is also required
that all commits offered to be tested by "git bisect" are on the
first-parent chain, and if so, shouldn't we be make sure each and
every time "test_script" is run, the commit that is at HEAD is on
the first parent chain between the initial good..bad range?

Other than that, overall this seems to be going in the right
direction.

Thanks.
