I assume your patch updates -mmin and similar to make they ignroe the
effect of -daystart.    If so, I think that would be a
backward-incompatible change and would be a change from what the
documentation already promises:

              Measure  times  (for  -amin,  -atime,  -cmin, -ctime, -mmin, and
              -mtime) from the beginning of today rather than  from  24  hours
              ago.   This  option only affects tests which appear later on the
              command line.

So I'm not sure what motivates the not-backward-compatible change.
Could you explain?
