Subject[PATCH 2/5] scripts/setlocalversion: remove workaround for old make-kpkg
This reverts commit b052ce4c840e ("kbuild: fix false positive -dirty
tag caused by make-kpkg").

If I understand correctly, it occurred in very old versions of
make-kpkg. When I tried a newer version, make-kpkg did not touch

Anyway, Debian uses 'make deb-pkg' instead of make-kpkg these days.

Debian handbook [1] mentions it as "the good old days":
"CULTURE The good old days of kernel-package

Before the Linux build system gained the ability to build proper
Debian packages, the recommended way to build such packages was to
use make-kpkg from the kernel-package package."
