So how about this?

It changes how CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO works, in the following trivial

- if it is set, things work the way they always have, and you get a
extended kernel release like


- but if it is _not_ set, we'll still try to get a version from the
underlying SCM (we actually support git, hg and SVN right now, even if
some comments may say "git only"), and if the underlying SCM says it
has a local version, we append just "+", so you get a version number


IOW, you'd never get 2.6.32-rc0, but you'd get either the complex git
version number (or SVN/hg/whatever), or at least "2.6.31+" with the "+"
showing that it is more than plain 2.6.31.

The "+" could be anything else, of course. The diff is pretty obvious, you
can argue about exactly _what_ you'd like to see as a suffix for "and then
