Sam Ravnborg [Sat, 18 Apr 2009 21:51:08 +0000 (23:51 +0200)]
We need a location for generated files.
Today they are spread over several places and bringing them
together to a common place makes it obvious hat is generated
and what isreal files.

Al Viro originally suggested: include/gen
Linus suggested to spell it out.

This patch implement support for

    include/generated

All files in include/generated are ignored by git.
include/generated is removed during "make mrproper".

With this we are ready to implement support for include/generated
in the various architctures and in the base kernel.
