This tag should never have been applied to these three files. I'm not
sure how that happened, but please just remove the tag from these files.

I don't have any context for this ancient change, but I've done a little
digging, and I believe the historical action was:

1) Make some modifications.
2) Remove the files in the generated commit.
3) Branch the REL6_4 release.

I think anytime the last action before a branch is a delete, cvs2git
will be confused because the deleted files don't get tagged, so the
branch date comes from the last non-delete modification and it doesn't see
the deletes as occuring before the branch.

What we want is the REL6_4 branch point to be after the delete
