The issue is the hand-written corrections.

Someone makes a commit to emacs-25.
The commit log message has an error on it (eg wrong author).
ChangeLog.2 is generated (to reiterate, currently it refuses to do so on
non-master branches) and corrected. Now the correction needs to be
propagated to master.

If you make gitmerge.el ignore ChangeLog.2 you'll lose the
corrections, or have to make them twice.

BTW, gitmerge.el should not ignore any other (non-generated) ChangeLog.
