I agree. I wondered about whether this patch could just get dropped
entirely, since after removing the changes in .gitignore and the "clean"
rule, the only change left is:

But that alone is a good change in my mind at least. Then it's clear
that that target is responsible for generating cscope.out and nothing
else.

So I'd be in favor of rewording the patch message and only retaining
this hunk (and dropping the other two).

Thanks,
Taylor
