Fix up .gitignore for top-level file patterns
Some of the gitignore file patters were explicitly meant to be only for the top level, but weren't marked that way, so they would trigger recursively in subdirectories too. Normally that was harmless, but at least "linux" happened to trigger elsewhere too. Fix it up. And other patterns in that section weren't necessarily top-level at all.
