Bug#589064: petsc: FTBFS: Unable to apply patches

Hello Sandro and Cyril,

This is really bizarre, I've never seen anything like it.

The patches apply, and upstream-p2 modifies TAGS.
Then the clean target reverses the patches -- but upstream-p2 does *not*
modify TAGS!  It looks like it modifies everything else.
Then the patches apply again, but TAGS is modified, so the patch fails.

Ah, I think dh_clean is removing the TAGS files in .pc, so quilt forgets
that they're part of the patches, and they don't get reverted.  I think
I know how to deal with this.
