kbuild: fix scripts/setlocalversion with git
When using trees like wireless-testing, which have untagged tags, scripts/setlocalversion does not display any git indication for localversion. This patch fixes it: If git is available, but no usable tag is found, it uses -g${head}. It skips the detection of unanottated tags via git name-rev.
