Change the source package name from 'linux-$(KERNELRELEASE)' to 'linux',
which is aligned with the source package from the Debian community.

The filenames will be changed as follows:

[before]
  linux-5.12.0-rc3+_5.12.0-rc3+-1.dsc
  linux-5.12.0-rc3+_5.12.0-rc3+.orig.tar.gz
  linux-5.12.0-rc3+_5.12.0-rc3+-1.diff.gz

[After]
  linux_5.12.0-rc3+-1.dsc
  linux_5.12.0-rc3+.orig.tar.gz
  linux_5.12.0-rc3+-1.diff.gz

Commit 3716001bcb7f ("deb-pkg: add source package") introduced
KDEB_SOURCENAME. If you are unhappy with the default name, you can
override it via KDEB_SOURCENAME.

I would prefer that the source package name is *not* the same, so that
it is clearly distinguished from distribution packages.

Before commit 3716001bcb7f "deb-pkg: add source package" the binary
packages used to claim that the source package was "linux-upstream"
(although no such source package existed).  Could we use that instead?
