Checkin rules are documented in the toplevel MAINTAINERS file:
Makefile.*; configure; configure.ac; src-release
Any global maintainer can approve changes to these
files, but they should be aware that they need to
be kept in sync with their counterparts in the GCC
repository. Also please notify the following of
any committed patches:

It is not. H.J.'s copy of one repo to the other was incorrect.

What you did is correct, but patches should be committed to both src
and gcc (preferably by the author ;) to keep them in sync. There is
no automatic process to sync them; any such attempt should review all
patches to *both* repos and apply missing patches *as* patches.
