First this really shouldn't happen. All patches are required to be atomic and not break any functionality within the series. Unfortunately this is not always the case and some patch series do break things if not fully applied

In those cases you can use

git bisect skip

Git will pick a different commit to test. Hopefully the series that doesn't work for you is not the source of the regression.
