When I clone the xen tree from git, the timestamps match about 95% of
the time, but the 5% failure rate was annoying enough that I finally
dug in to fix the parser build.

IMHO the generated files should be omitted from the source tree; as
long as the source files are actually buildable, there's no reason not
to treat them like any other source file.
