Yes, unless you touch some widely used header files.

If you have found a bug, it's best to file it on bugzilla first and then submit
fixes/patches for it in gerrit (mentioning the bug number in the commit message).

Regarding how, you might want to look at these:

`git pull` should be enough to pull the latest changes and rebase your current
changes on top of that.

Comment 16 reports that it's broken for Linux as well. Also, the bug fields
doesn't mention it to be a Window specific bug; so, no need to file a separate bug.

You might want to read the commit that breaks it for Linux. Did you already do
that? If yes, I think it's best to dump your findings on the bug so that others
can help you wherever you are stuck.
