kbuild: Use git in scripts/setlocalversion
Currently scripts/setlocalversion is a Perl script that tries to figure out the current git commit ID of a repo without using git. It also imports Digest::MD5 without using it and generally is too big for the small task it does. :] And it always reports a git ID, even when the HEAD is tagged -- this is a bug. This patch replaces it with a Bourne Shell script that uses git commands to do the same. I can't come up with a scenario where someone would use a git repo and refuse to install git core at the same time, so I think it's reasonable to assume git is available. The new script also reports uncommitted changes by adding -git_dirty to the version string. Obviously you can't see from that _what_ has been changed from the last commit, so it's more of a reminder that you forgot to commit something. The script is easily extensible: simply add a check for Mercurial (or whatever) below the git check. Note: the script doesn't print a newline char anymore. That's only because it was easier to implement it that way, not a feature (or bug). 'make kernelrelease' doesn't care.
