Yes and no:-)

My understanding is that there is a conflict because of commits between
this patch and head: a file that this patch deletes (it is derived by make
rules) has been updated. It seems that git is not too good at detecting
this and providing a meaningful message.

Please find attached an updated version which seemed to work for me.

Note that this is really a POC. How to derive a file is under discussion:
it has been suggested that the unix shell approach would not work on
Windows. I've suggested perl or python (which version?) but I'm not sure
that it is okay either.
