No, you're right. I was mistaken about what the patch is doing.
Forget what I said, this change is fine. No `.gitignore` files are in the `git status` output.

I'm still think that I need to ignore files for other tools I use anyway, so not doing this for clangd is not a big improvement.
But that's just my opinion, please disregard other concerns.
