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?
