As you noticed in 5/5, files listed in $(extra-y) are cleaned up.

So, I removed the now redundant $(obj)/constants.py from 'clean-files'.

$(if $(KBUILD_SRC),*.py) will clean *.py only for out-of-tree build.

'*.py' files in the build directory are symbolic links.

'*.py' files in the source directory are check-in source files.
