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.)
