Ok. Then the essential part of the patch could look like this:

--- a/tools/misc/mkrpm
+++ b/tools/misc/mkrpm
@@ -17,9 +17,7 @@ xenroot="$1"
 # version and release.  Default to "0" if there isn't a release.
 v=(${2/-/ })
-[[ -n "$release" ]] || release="0"

 cd $xenroot

release will be anything after a dash, or 0. And an optional ".$PKG_RELEASE"
will be appended.
