Title:
  linux-lts and linux-hwe autopkgtests fail due to version mismatch

Bug description:
  the autopkgtests for the kernel include 'ubuntu-regression-suite'
  which contains this test:

  sver=`dpkg-parsechangelog -SVersion`
  read x rver x </proc/version_signature

  flavour=${rver#*-*-}
  rver=${rver%-$flavour}

  echo "Source Package Version: $sver"
  echo "Running Kernel Version: $rver"

  if [ "$sver" != "$rver" ]; then
      echo "ERROR: running version does not match source package" 1>&2
      exit 1
  fi

  However, when testing a -lts or -hwe kernel build, the running kernel
  will not match because the running kernel is the stock version while
  the building/testing kernel is the newer -lts/-hwe version.

  This failure results in autopkgtest errors for all other packages that
  invoke linux autopkgtests - for example, initramfs-tools, systemd, ...
  This requires unnecessary work to investigate the autopkgtest errors
  every time, only to find it's a autopkgtest error.
