The patch does a couple of things. It adds tags in the html archive
pages that are use to suppress indexing of "archive boilerplate", and it
adds the search form for each list's archive to the TOC for that list
and actually creates the htdig configurations and cgi that are used to
generate indexes and searches for that list.

If you want a global search, it seems to me that you could just use
htdig or another search engine to index and search the entire archive
without patching Mailman at all or at least not beyond the indexing patch.
