 Ok. I understand your opinion.
 If I am a maintainer, I might think the same.

 But, I think .gitignore is usefull for a developer.
 because I change a lots of files to put debug message for
 understanding u-boot or findings bugs.
 and Sometimes unexpected chenges are made by mistakes.
 I check it with "git status", so I like to use this command easily.

 And if there is a maintaind .gitignore file, It is very usefull.

 How about this patch.
 not .gitignore but maintaind as gitignore.
