Yes this should be fine.

I have not run the testsuite before, I have run "make check" on the
latest svn gcc for C and C++ without any patches, and it fails:
# of expected passes 7052
# of unexpected failures 1
# of expected failures 95
# of unsupported tests 341
Would the patch I have be ok if I get the same results? Or do I need
to wait until there are no unexpected failures?
