It is late again and I might miss the point. The package version contains the 
git hash but then you might run a different version than was installed to the 
rootfs. So if uname -a would report the hash as well I wouldn't mind.

trying to answer what mike brought up.
	opkg upgrade and they will get the new kernel flashed and modules installed.

	modules from the old rootfs might not load, so either don't care, copy your 
modules over or cheat on the kernel version. I think we can cope with that.
