kbuild: improve version string logic
The LOCALVERSION= string passed to "make" will now always be appended to the kernel version after CONFIG_LOCALVERSION, if it exists, regardless of whether CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is set or not. This allows users to uniquely identify their kernel builds with a string. If CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is enabled, the unique SCM tag reported by setlocalversion (or .scmversion) is appended to the kernel version, if it exists. When CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not enabled, a `+' is appended to the kernel version to represent that the kernel has been revised since the last release unless "make LOCALVERSION=" was used to uniquely identify the build. The end result is this: - when LOCALVERSION= is passed to "make", it is appended to the kernel version, - when CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is enabled, a unique SCM identifier is appended if the respository has been revised beyond a tagged commit, and - when CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is disabled, a `+' is appended if the repository has been revised beyond a tagged commit and LOCALVERSION= was not passed to "make". Examples: With CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO: "make" results in v2.6.32-rc4-00149-ga3ccf63. If there are uncommited changes to the respository, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-00149-ga3ccf63-dirty. If "make LOCALVERSION=kbuild" were used, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-kbuild-00149-ga3ccf63-dirty. Without CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO, "make" results in v2.6.32-rc4+ unless the repository is at the Linux v2.6.32-rc4 commit (in which case the version would be v2.6.32-rc4). If "make LOCALVERSION=kbuild" were used, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-kbuild. Also renames variables such as localver-auto and _localver-auto to more accurately describe what they represent: localver-extra and scm-identifier, respectively.
