If you don't set generated-autoload-file, your autoloads end up in the
top-level loaddefs.el. The CEDET packages have their own loaddefs.el
files underneath lisp/cedet:


The reason for this is that those loaddefs.el autoload EIEIO classes
with eieio-defclass-autoload. If we'd have those in the toplevel
loaddefs.el, this would trigger loading EIEIO at startup.
