Sounds like if you submit a patch to fix this, it would makes sense. (I
haven't tried run-clang-tidy with -fix myself; what I usually do is
invoking clang-tidy directly with -export-fixes=, then
clang-apply-replacements, but in theory this is the same.)

Perhaps the reason why nobody hit this before is the usage of relative
paths; I think cmake just writes absolute paths in the compile commands
db, so you don't hit the codepath where making the paths absolute
