Git does not have the concept of renaming files ('git mv' is actually
just a shortcut for 'git rm' and 'git add'), renames are detected based
on file contents and false positive or false negatives are not uncommon.

So just ignore it (if you really really want to avoid the "rename", you
will have to delete the file in one commit and add the new in another
