Default Allow kernel ABI version to be specified as command-line argument

When building as part of a kernel source package, the kernel ABI
version used should always be the current one. The 'installed name'
changes with the kernel ABI version but is also quite regular.
Neither of these should need to be specified redundantly in
configuration files.

gen-control, install-files: Allow the version to be specified as a
command-line argument, overriding the configuration file. In this
case, the configuration file should specify '-'. Allow the installed
name to be specified as '-', and in that case generate it
automatically.
