I checked out your "concat" branch. The commit corresponding to the patch 2/5
looks like this:

# git show 61bb9b27ddb9237bda3c08791ea97017139d18b5

    mgmt and concat_buf: define tgtadm_err, add error values to tgtadm_error.h

Here it ends. If you look the patch 2/5 that i sent, it is concluded with the
following lines:
+typedef enum tgtadm_errno tgtadm_err;

And this typedef of "tgtadm_err" is exactly what's lacking according 
to the compilation error message you'd sent. Whatever the reason that
the patch was applied only partially, this is the cause of the errors.

My fault, i did not pay attention to that.
Unfortunately, not only the 1st patch breaks bisectability, actually
you need to apply all 5 patches to get everything compilable.
This happened because i produced them on the file-by-file basis after

I don't see any easy way now to produce a fine-grained patch set.
Thus i am going to send you a unified patch with all the changes.
Not perfect but i agree that keeping bisectability is important.
