This will give us bootstrap timing for two different set of sources.
It is not strictly comparing Apple and Apple.

I'd do
- Build gcc1 which does not have your patch
- Build gcc2 which is gcc1 + your patch
- Select appropriate GCC sources
- Build it with gcc1
- Build same sources with gcc2

(no need to bootstrap)
