I agree, that these $Id$ now are meaningless and can be removed.

My remark from previous discussion still remains:

Does git have a counterpart to $Id$, which can be used to identify the 
version of a file?

These files usually carry RTEMS-CVS $Id$ (modulo bugs), which should be 
subject to the same treatment as all other $Id$, but carry additional 
protected/special $Id$s, which had been necessary to protect them from 
RTEMS-CVS modifying these files' original $Id$s
