CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO: Automatically append version information to the version string

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO:

Help text

This will try to automatically determine if the current tree is a release tree by looking for git tags that belong to the current top of tree revision.

A string of the format -gxxxxxxxx will be added to the localversion if a git-based tree is found. The string generated by this will be appended after any matching localversion* files, and after the value set in LOCALVERSION.

(The actual string used here is the first eight characters produced by running the command:

$ git rev-parse --verify HEAD

which is done within the script "scripts/setlocalversion".)
