To avoid git repo tag namespace collisions, the derivative kernel target names
should be embedded in their git 'release' tags, e.g. in the Ubuntu Xenial git

tag Ubuntu-raspi2-4.4.0-1017.23 instead of Ubuntu-4.4.0-1017.23
tag Ubuntu-snapdragon-4.4.0-1020.23 instead of Ubuntu-4.4.0-1020.23

This new tag naming scheme should be applied to the main kernel branch and
the -meta branch for each derivative.

Derivatives to be changed:



Here's the debian/gbp.conf change for each derivative, enabling proper
verification by our verify-release-ready script.  New properly named tags
for the latest derivative release will be pushed too, for each derivative
branch and its -meta.
