[llvm-dev] merge_guards_bot reports clang-tidy/clang-format findings unrelated to modified code

I second Fangrui's findings and add:

- clang-format should only run on "source" files. For one, it runs on
  non-C/C++ files right now with the results you can imagine. Even if it
  is a C/C++ test we do not always want to format it.
- it would be perfect if the linter would not report issues that are
  present in the surrounding code, e.g., if the naming scheme is kept
  consistent with the surrounding code it should not report it as
  problematic. For example, since the functions in ADT/SetOperations.h
  are all flagged as problematic which means if you add one in the same
  style it is flagged as well.
