This is actually what was throwing me for a loop!

Aha!  So the issue seems to be that I do out of tree builds, and
init/build-version does not take that into account, so I was always
getting whatever is in the kernel source's .version and not what is in
my actual build directory.  I'm still not entirely sure how to get
that one, but I'm a lot closer, thank you again so much, for your time
in putting together the patchset to fix the building of the packages,
as well as answering my questions.
