Hi all,

I'm doing a quick RFC on a patch to get 3.7 based kernels building

The patch has the details on the kernel commits that have moved
version.h around, which breaks our builds due to an explicit reference
in kernel.bbclass.

I thought about making the call conditional, but as the patch says,
this introduces a bit more complexity where it might not be 
required. Removing the reference to version.h fixes the build, and 
didn't break any of my older kernel builds (2.6.39, 3.0, 3.2, 3.4)
while still producing version.h.

I can't locate the original reason that version.h was being directly
built, so that's why this is a RFC. I'm hoping someone will yell if
this breaks a use case that I don't know about.

This is stacked on top of my yocto master branch, since it was a 
RFC. I can rebase onto oe-core, or master under test as appropriate.
