[PATCH] kbuild: automatically append a short string to the version based upon the git commit

If CONFIG_AUTO_LOCALVERSION is set, the user is using a git-based tree, and the
current HEAD is not referred to by any tags in .git/refs/tags/, append -g and
the first 8 characters of the commit to the version string.  This makes it
easier to use git-bisect, and/or to do a daily build, without trampling on your
older, working builds, or accidentally setting up conflicting sets of modules.

This will try to automatically determine if the current tree is a
release tree by looking for git tags that
belong to the current top of tree revision.
A string of the format -gxxxxxxxx will be added to the localversion
if a git based tree is found. The string generated by this will be
appended after any matching localversion* files, and after the value
set in CONFIG_LOCALVERSION
Note: This requires Perl, and a git repository, but not necessarily
the git or cogito tools to be installed.
