I just did that.  I have Linus's tree and tags, and Ralf's tree:

git checkout mips
git diff v2.6.14..HEAD

the nice thing about git is that it was written to do exactly the sort 
of things we need it to do, like this.

Linus wrote a HOWTO on that very subject:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/howto/isolate-bugs-with-bisect.txt

I'm no git expert, but can't you just

git-pull rsync://ftp.linux-mips.org/git/linux.git remote:local

That works for me.
