my_global.h is a hodgepodge of various system includes, #defines, and #includes of other header files. As a central choke point, any edit to it will necessarily invoke recompiling of more than half of MySQL. A lot of work has been done on it, but now is the time for it to go away entirely.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
1. Split my_global.h into various smaller, logical pieces. Make my_global.h contain nothing but #includes of these.
2. Move the #includes from my_global.h into the relevant files, one by one.
3. Remove the file entirely.
