Add swap files for vim to .gitignore.

This patch adds the most common swap files for vim to .gitignore. The
editor may leave those behind if is stopped or crashes.  We already
do the same kind of things for emacs.

ChangeLog:

         * .gitignore: Add swap files for vim.

- On most setups, .swp is the most common name, and .sw[a-z] in general;
  not something with two dots.

- I have never had issues with vim swap files showing up in git, there
  must be something else you do different, too.

- Maybe we should ignore every dot file (except those few we then
  unignore)?
