But in your patch description, you said:

Without CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO, "make" results in v2.6.32-rc4+
unless the repository is at the Linux v2.6.32-rc4 commit (in which
case the version would be v2.6.32-rc4). If "make LOCALVERSION=kbuild"
were used, it results in v2.6.32-rc4-kbuild.

So, shouldn't that be "make LOCALVERSION=-kbuild"?

Yup, that's what it should have said. That doesn't mean that we need to
change the long-standing behavior of LOCALVERSION= to add an implied `-',

Ok, but your patch description is the only doc I found, so... :)
