That's weird, it works fine when generating makefiles.
Maybe MSVC doesn't check whether running a target changed the output
file, but instead assumes all targets that depend on it must also be

For reference, r117102 introduces for each tablegen-generated file a
target that checks whether the latest tablegen output differs from the
one currently in use. This target always runs if the tablegen
executable is newer than the last significant change to the output

If that turns out to be the problem, does anyone know how to fix that?
(Other than reverting it and going back to recompiling all files
depending on tablegen output whenever tablegen is relinked even if the
output hasn't changed, I mean)
