I initially added the `+' to the version string in 85a256d8 during this
release cycle. As the changelog indicates, it means that your tree is
beyond a tagged commit and LOCALVERSION= was not passed on the command
line so the tree must be described as a modified 2.6.35-rc5 kernel, for
example, instead of vanilla. That's the semantics that the `+' indicates.
