Subjectkbuild: Support LOCALVERSION
The following patch combines the request from several people.
If you place a file named localversion* in the root of your
soruce tree or the root of your output tree the text included in this
file will be appended to KERNELRELEASE.

LOCALVERSION was originally introduced by Ian Wienand <ianw@gelato.unsw.edu.au>

This allows one to put a short string in localversion identifying this
particular configuration "-smpacpi", or to identify applied patches
to the source "-llat-np".

More specifically:
$(srctree)/localversion-lowlatency contains "-llat"
$(srctree)/localversion-scheduler-nick constins "-np"

$(objtree)/localversion contains "-smpacpi"

Resulting KERNELRELEASE would be:
2.6.8.rc1-smpacpi-llat-np


Note that you no longer need to modify your Makefile to identify
your kernel so no rejects when applying new patches.
If you add a new localversion* file, or change a existing one kbuild
will pick up this and do the proper rebuild next time you run make.

Only issue is that KERNELRELEASE needs to be <= 64 chars - so keep the names short.

kbuild errors out if you are above limit.
$ cat localviersion-long
very-long-version-in-localversion-file-exceeding-64-chars-for-sure
Example:
CHK include/linux/version.h
"2.6.9-rc1-very-long-version-in-localversion-file-exceeding-64-chars-for-sure" exceeds 64 characters
make: *** [include/linux/version.h] Error 1


Where do we document this?

[This is deliberately not pushed to my bk tree - want some comments first].
