[Evergreen] first attempt at Evergreen 13.1 kernel

Hello,

13.1 is still going to be supported for quite some time before it goes
into the Evergreen phase but I believe the kernel switch deserves some
time for testing. Thus I prepared a (SLE12 based) 3.12 kernel for
Evergreen in a similar way to the (SLE11-SP2 based) 3.0 kernel used in
Evergreen 11.4.

So far it's almost untested except that it builds and booted and has
been running on one machine for 11 hours. Everyone adventurous enough is
welcome to help with testing. The packages are available in

  home:mkubecek:evergreen-13.1

OBS project, repository URL (for zypper) is

  http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mkubecek:/evergreen-13.1/openSUSE_13.1/

The project and its repository also contain other packages providing
kernel modules. The only exception is i586 build of xen package as the
kernel doesn't provide 32-bit hypervisor; hopefully it's not going to be
a big problem.

Diff of the configurations is attached (left column is standard 13.1
kernel, right column the evergreen one). Except the missing i586
hypervisor code, the only potential problem is the change of
CONFIG_XEN_INTERFACE_VERSION, I'm going to look more into that.

I still have to check the full list of available modules.
