[PATCH RFC] Drop release date from kexec-tools version output

kexec --version reports like below:
kexec-tools 2.0.7 released 05 February 2015
The date string is generated when one run bootstrap script, thus
it is more like a build date instead of release date.
Even for distribution like Fedora it will make more sense if it can
report something like "kexec-tools 2.0.7-1 released 05 February 2015"
In case building from git tree, the date cause more confusion.
So let's remove it from version string unless there is better idea
to resolve the issue.
