Bug 1286075: allow optimization of tasks whose dependencies have not been optimized; r=armenzg MikeLing initially did this in bug 1287018. The intent of this conditional was to make optimization faster by not even checking most tasks, based on the assumption that if the prerequisite to a task has changed (for example, a docker image or a build), then naturally we will want to execute that task. However, as we have developed actual optimization methods, this has proven not to be the case: we might want to optimize a test out if its inputs have not changed, even if a new installer has been built. Similarly, SETA may optimize tasks out even if their inputs have changed. MozReview-Commit-ID: LgHET3Z84GB

# To trigger a clobber replace ALL of the textual description below,
# giving a bug number and a one line description of why a clobber is
# required. Modifying this file will make configure check that a
# clobber has been performed before the build can continue.
#
# MERGE NOTE: When merging two branches that require a CLOBBER, you should
#             merge both CLOBBER descriptions, to ensure that users on
#             both branches correctly see the clobber warning.

# Are you updating CLOBBER because you think it's needed for your WebIDL
# changes to stick? As of bug 928195, this shouldn't be necessary! Please
# don't change CLOBBER for WebIDL changes any more.

Bug 1288460 requires another clobber due to bug 1298779.
