As much as I normally hate merges, I think this is one of those rare
cases where a merge is the only thing that makes sense, even after a bit
of history rewrite due to moving to a subdir.

It wouldn't make sense to rebase everything on top as older commits
would have no working tests anyway so it is better to do bisects only
down to one or the other branch anyway.
