[precise/master-next 3/3] UBUNTU: [Packaging] uploadnum should be the remainder of the version

The uploadnum variable in debian/rules is somewhat confusingly named,
it should be the "remainder of the version after <version>-<abinum>", not
just the uploadnum itself.  This version is only used for identification
in uname -v and there it is completely appropriate for this to be complete
with backport versions etc.
