Seems correct to me. But when you say that you add the PPA, do you add
the sources (deb-src) as well? Since the xorg-edgers -intel driver is
fresh from git master, you could also have downloaded the xorg-edgers
source package, and applied the patch here. It should then build with
debuild, and you can install the generated .deb packages.

Anyway, I added the patch in question to today's xorg-edgers -intel
package, so you can download a ready .deb from the PPA to verify it.
