*sigh*  This is wrong.  It should be:

tools/misc/mktarball $PWD

If you do the above command, you'll end up with a release-looking
tarball, rather than one with the git commit ID in the name.

Also NB, two things:

* The "src-tarball" build target (and the mktarball script) is not
available in the normal 4.4 tree; it's a draft of a bit of
functionality I'm in the process if pushing upstream.  It may or may
not end up backported to 4.4.1.
* If you've already cloned the qemu trees, you need to run "make -C
tools qemu-xen-dir-force-update" instead.
