It's *also* a good idea to omit large generated file changes from patch
postings, unless they are important for the review. (When constant
suffixes are eliminated from auto-libm-test-out - desirable for the same
reasons as for the present patch - that will rewrite the whole file - a >
60MB diff - and you certainly don't want to send that to the list.)
