If you have a long-lived tree, or plan on swapping to old commits prior
to the point where we renamed things, I recommend doing:

echo /daemon/probes.h >> .git/info/exclude

then you will be immune from 'git add .' accidentally re-adding it.

Fresh checkouts are immune, and with this message serving as notice, I
think we're okay.
