What is the "intention"?
Does the build-bot increases "X.YY" (1.16 above) with each build?
"desktop" for a certain config-setup?
If this is for the build-bot or any other individual setting why has
it to be in the "default" kernel-config?

Here the latest Ubuntu/precise settings for LOCALVERSION:

/boot/config-3.2.0-50-generic:# CONFIG_LOCALVERSION_AUTO is not set

Sorry, this is a bit uncommon.
( I just want to understand your intention. )

What is the "intention" here?
To have "-dirty" or other "crap" in the (u)name?

Can you post your "uname -r" from the working kernel you recently
booted into successfully?
