So, the files in xen/ were the dependencies files for xen.efi and 
xen-syms that were getting left behind. $(DEPS) appears to always
have â.*.dâ in it, based on me putting an echo into the clean rule to 
print it out. However, looking at this, I am also seeing â.dâ files left
behind in xen/common/compat that I did not notice before.
