[lldb] Remove all 'clean' targets from test Makefiles

Authored by teemperor on Feb 6 2020, 6:10 AM.



To my knowledge we don't actually use or need these rules. And if we need them then
there is probably a better way to implement this than having all these random regexes.

Yes, I don't think we need to maintain this. Now that the tests our built out of tree, we can clean them by just nuking the build folder.

The one use I had for these clean targets was when you are making a new test and getting the test source to compile it is really tempting to run make in the test directory. It's a lot slower to go run the test, see the compile fail, fix something, etc... than just run make. But if you do that and don't clean, then when you actually go to run the test, it will fail because make sees the product in the source directory and won't build it in the out-of-line directory, but the test will look for it there.

Not a super compelling reason, but...
