Currently i removed the last kernel version dot in linux-tools to
avoid user confusion between stable kernel number and linux-tools
version. I manually check if stable release embed fix for cpupower and
perf to avoid user to update when not needed.

As a side note, Kernel dev have choosen to ship with kernel source
tree those tools. They had the choice of moving them into linux-util
or others source tree. My suggestion was to avoid work to be done
twice for us. It's done on other distro like debian.
