EXTARVAERSION is overridden by the arch/xen/Makefile using the same
technique useed by UML and various other architectures.

The Makefile for the Cisco iSCSI initiator (3.4.3) uses awk and sed to
extract EXTRAVERSION from the Makefile. It then spits out warnings on
screen as 'uname -r' does not match what it gets from the Makefile.
On close inspection, it turns out that the warnings are just noise and
things will work if you are careful. So I guess we are ok for now.
