Motivation for this change

This commit adds the user-facing version to the tailscale version
output.

Prior to this change, it used a hardcoded fallback that is fairly
infrequently updated (https://github.com/tailscale/tailscale/commits/main/version/version.go).

After this change, we print the user-friendlier tag version, which is
helpful when wanting to e.g check to see if you have a version that is
compatible with a feature like magic dns.

E.g:

[nixpkgs(dani/tailscale-version)] $ ./result/bin/tailscale version
1.0.5
Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits CONTRIBUTING.md.

Awesome! We were just talking about how to get these versions to make sense in downstream distros that build their own package, but this is perfect while we work on something that's applicable beyond Nix.

Thank you!
