Update .gitignore with LSP files
This does not provide files for LSP support, but ignores them so they
aren't accidentally checked in by developers.
LSP (Language Server Protocol) is a tools that can be used with various
editors to make navigating source code easier. It is more advanced than
`cscope` and supports completion, for example.
A common LSP for C/C++ is `clangd`, and it creates a `.cache` directory
within the project to store data.
The tool `bear` can be used with `make` to assist `clangd` in
determining where the source code is (specifically headers). This is
critical as OpenSSL uses the `<>` form of `#include` rather than the
`""` form. The `<>` form will cause `clangd` to look in e.g.
`/usr/include` for header files, rather than `include/openssl`. The
`bear` tool will create `compile_commands.json` that `clangd` can use
to find include files.
