[erlang-patches] Properly ignore os_mon and otp_mibs generated includes

Out of curiosity, I just run git status under zsh instead of my usual bash and the files are indeed ignored. So the problem is that your wildcards aren't understood by bash and it doesn't ignore the generated included.

I blame Git and I think the patterns should work everywhere.
