[PATCH] kbuild: display compile version
Coywolf Qi Hunt [Wed, 22 Jun 2005 00:15:15 +0000 (17:15 -0700)]
I am always trying to make sure I've booted the right kernel after a new
install.  Too paranoid maybe.  But I guess there're other people like me.
So let's make kbuild display the compile version number at the end to give
us a hint.  I know we may be booting vmlinux someday, but don't care about
it for now.
