Autogen: Skip generated files for compatibility with CMake 3.8

Brad King requested to merge brad.king/cmake:autogen-no-generated-files into master

The change in !543 (merged) changes behavior of existing projects that may not expect AUTOGEN on generated files and do not yet set SKIP_AUTOGEN on them. Disable the behavior change for now to fix the regression for CMake 3.9. We can restore it later with a policy.

In order to keep the implementation and tests working, add an undocumented property we can use in the tests to enable the behavior before the policy is introduced.

Fixes: #17031 (closed)
Issue: #16186 (closed)
