Place the version changes after the '---'. They are great for patch
series, but we prefer not to have them in the git logs. The "Link:" tag
should allow people to find the version history of patches if they are
interested. By placing the version updates after the '---', git will
ignore them when pulling them in.

Also, please have the Signed-off-by be the last tag, otherwise it
screws up my scripts ;-)
