Again, no - This only works in trivial cases, but is wrong in general.

cvsignores and gitignores use a different syntax and are incompatible.

That said, a single toplevel .gitignore can replace a whole CVS source 
tree's .cvsignore hierarchy.

In other words, you will want to
find .cvsignore | xargs git rm
and write a toplevel .gitignore

But more important than discussing these details: When will OAR's 
rtems.git finally go online and be fully operational?
