The `+' modifies the base kernel version, not the version string.
Otherwise, it would be impossible to determine whether a "2.6.35-rc2-foo"
kernel were vanilla 2.6.35-rc2 or otherwise modified.

If you're using git, which you obviously are, then add localversion* files
to your repository (or modify CONFIG_LOCALVERSION if you pass along your
.config as well) and use git-tag to indicate its something you're
releasing as your kernel.
