Now I see a bunch of patches pushed to Denzil branch and I want to test

What do I do to rebuild my project to include the latest patches. I've
tried things like "bitbake -c cleansstate core-image-cdv-media" before the
new "bitbake core-image-cdv-media" and I've tried just rebaking by itself.
Something always fails. I've learned that to really test I have to
completely delete my build directory saving only my local.conf and
bblayer.conf.
Just git pull ; bitbake should work -- all of the packages that
changed will rebuild without any problems.

That's the theory, and everyone who works against oe-core/poky master
does this ever day (including me).

Can you give an example of something that fails?
