Subject[PATCH] KVM: add localversion to avoid confusion and conflicts

Adding localversion avoids confusion in kernel images :

like Linux version 2.6.30-rc7 does not tell whether it is linus or kvm kernel.

By adding localversion it tells :

Linux version 2.6.30-rc7-kvm , any doubt ;-)

Secondly, by installing modules it overwrites on linus modules.

By adding localversion :

[root@hpdv5 kvm]# make modules_install
INSTALL arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpu_debug.ko
INSTALL arch/x86/kernel/test_nx.ko
INSTALL arch/x86/kvm/kvm-amd.ko
INSTALL arch/x86/kvm/kvm-intel.ko
INSTALL arch/x86/kvm/kvm.ko
INSTALL arch/x86/oprofile/oprofile.ko
INSTALL drivers/scsi/scsi_wait_scan.ko
INSTALL drivers/virtio/virtio.ko
INSTALL drivers/virtio/virtio_balloon.ko
INSTALL drivers/virtio/virtio_pci.ko
INSTALL drivers/virtio/virtio_ring.ko
DEPMOD 2.6.30-rc7-kvm

I am inspired by Ingo's -tip, I am sure Ingo will tell more advantages,
if these are not enough :-)
