    But your description makes it sound like you do
    untar kernel X
    apply patches Y
    make -j Tree

    I'm sorry if I'm getting you wrong, but each of these steps is
    Even if X and Y are the same each time, "Tree" is different.

    The test should be
    N times
    make clean
    time make -j Tree

    Am I misunderstaning your test?
