I initially added the `+' to the version string in 85a256d8 during this 
release cycle.  As the changelog indicates, it means that your tree is 
beyond a tagged commit and LOCALVERSION= was not passed on the command 
line so the tree must be described as a modified 2.6.35-rc5 kernel, for 
example, instead of vanilla.  That's the semantics that the `+' indicates.
