[U-Boot] should "make distclean" remove "tools/env/embedded.c"?

  was verifying that "make distclean" really removed all generated
artifacts of a build and, after building and distcleaning, while "git
status" showed no remaining untracked content, there was this:

$ git status --ignored
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.

Ignored files:
  (use "git add -f <file>..." to include in what will be committed)


nothing to commit, working tree clean

  so while that file is clearly produced by a build, and it is
referenced in a very short tools/env/.gitignore file:


it is obviously not removed by "make distclean". is this deliberate?
