No, this patch is OK (in that respect). As long as the git-bisect user
sets CONFIG_XEN=n (and surely he will), things will compile.

That being said,

+mflags-$(CONFIG_X86_XEN) := -Iinclude/asm-i386/mach-xen
+mcore-$(CONFIG_X86_XEN) := mach-xen
# generic subarchitecture
mflags-$(CONFIG_X86_GENERICARCH) := -Iinclude/asm-i386/mach-generic
mcore-$(CONFIG_X86_GENERICARCH) := mach-default
@@ -99,6 +103,7 @@ drivers-$(CONFIG_PM) += arch/i386/powe

CFLAGS += $(mflags-y)
AFLAGS += $(mflags-y)
+CPPFLAGS += $(mflags-y)

This change affects _all_ subarchitectures (by potentially altering their
CPPFLAGS) and it's rather a mystery why one subarch needs the -Ifoo in its
CPPFLAGS whereas all the others do not.
