AFAIK there is no simple way of doing that. It is possible with
exporting/filtering/importing (which is quite time-demanding). It could
be done too by branching at revision 109469 and
then patching the working copy with 109471, committing, patching with
109472, committing... all done by a script, of course.

But IMO the easier way is to create a reverse patch for 109470, start
with the bisection as usual and, on each test, before building emacs,
apply the patch if the revision being tested comes after 109470, then
clean the working copy for undoing your patching and continue bisecting.
