Bug #174216; kernel-package:added-patches change

Hey all,

  Manoj, Matt Zimmerman and I discussed on IRC the possibility of
  changing the default behaviour of kernel-package with regard to the
  'patch_the_kernel' option.  At the moment the default is
  'patch_the_kernel = no' which means that make-kpkg will never patch
  the kernel, regardless of command-line options and such.  The
  default behaviour that makes sense to me, and probably some others, is
  'patch_the_kernel = auto', which means that the kernel is patched when
  make-kpkg is called with '--added-patches'.

  This post is meant to inform others of the potential change and to
  invite discussion on the change and to discover how others feel about
