[kteam-tools][PATCH v2 0/7] git-build-kernel: source pkg features

Fixes and features relating to construction of source packages via the
'git push remote commit-ish:source' method.

New (optional) feature: "SOURCE_PACKAGE_CHROOT=series" can be specified in
debian.env to force a particular chroot for source package contstruction.
We could could this to override the default behavior (building the source
package in a chroot matching the target series) if ever needed.

New behavior: The source package _source.changes file is now built with
the suitable 'dpkg-genchanges -vversion' relative to -updates as determined
by rmadison.

Fixed: The push :source method now works for arbitrary source package names,
not just "linux".

[PATCH v2] adds:
  + no orig tarball for -meta (or -signed); otherwise, verify tarball exists
  + special-case debuild -v handling for backport kernels with "~" versions
  + sanitize debuild -v handling when building already-published src pkgs
  + note in README: main kernel build repo can be used for -meta and -signed
