Default Bug#624297: build-linux-kbuild.sh: add support for -rcX kernels (needs version mangling)

Package: linux-kbuild-2.6
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


attached is a patch for the build-linux-kbuild.sh referenced from

It adds support for -rcX kernels by doing version mangling from -rcX to
~rcX as needed by Debian.

Also it would be nice if the build-linux-kbuild.sh would be kept in the
SVN repository and a comment like the following be added to the script:

# The latest version of this script can be retrived via
# svn export <URL>/build-linux-kbuild.sh
