Current version numbers generated by the `rebuild_iso.sh` file have the wrong format #57

Currently, the version numbers that are generated by the rebuild_iso.sh shell script when no version number is included on the command line are not in the same format as those the version numbers that were used with previous ISOs built from the Razor-Microkernel project. Previous ISOs all used a version number that looked something like "0.9.3.0", but the default version numbers that are added to the ISO name by the rebuild_iso.sh script look something like "v0.9.3.0" instead. This change, while small, seems to cause issues with how Razor determines which MK ISO to use if more than one MK ISO is available (Razor should pick the newest, but it doesn't always do so if version numbers with this new format are included in the list). The MK boot process also includes code to display the version number of the MK being booted, and that code assumes a format like "0.9.3.0". Given these issues on both sides, we need to change the current code in the rebuild_iso.sh script to do a bit more work and convert the tags from the GitHub repository to something more consistent with the version numbers that Razor (and the Razor-Microkernel Controller) are expecting.

…he change in this commit the build-bundle-file.sh script constructs a shell that parses the git version numbers a bit differently so that auto-generated version numbers for the Microkernel ISO are more consistent with the version numbers that were used in numbering our Razor Microkernel ISOs previously (versions like "0.9.3.0" instead of "v0.9.3.0").
