Does not seem to me and many people around. If in doubt - ask at ML or IRC.

Just for your information - this covers some lines in some files in
llvm/CodeGen, some files in lib/Target, some files in lib/Target/X86
and so on. Note that subjects are split across the files, we do not
have one-to-one or one-to-many mapping between subject and file. If
we'd follow your approach we'd need either specify too wide wildcards
(e.g. lib/CodeGen/*) or specify line ranges in the files, which does
not make any sense.
