newvers.sh is part of the kernel build process. It is not a
function of CVS or cvswrappers.
All I did was add the $Name$ tag to newvers.sh, which cvs expands
when the file is checked out, so when the script is run it can
figure out which tag was used to build the kernel (a blank tag meaning
that it was from the CVS HEAD branch).
This way people's dmesg will correctly show whether the kernel is
from HEAD or the DragonFly_Stable tag or, when we do another release,
the release tag.
