commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=8258df279ab3e87ae1e9e63074ac93c8f3cf73c1
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

Some packages use the buildroot version string (to set their own version
string). Computing the version string globally will makes it easy for
them to use it instead of re-computing it in every packages.
