The dead code is in the toplevel Makefile, the command above uses

Yes, but shouldnt this be easier like "make update-qemu-trad" which
downloads and forces the tree(s) to be in a given state? And while we
are at it, I find something like "make clean-qemu-trad" useful. It
should check if the subdir is a git tree, and do either a "git clean
-dfx" or "make clean".

And perhaps all that should be in two easy targets like 'update-subprj'
and 'clean-subprj'. There is likely a better string than "subprj".
