ref-manual: Added section on linux kernel image names using PE
Fixes [YOCTO #5089] In the "Migration" section for going from 1.3 to 1.4, I have added a new section to describe how the value of PE is now in the generated Linux kernel image filename. (From yocto-docs rev: 8ff3d263d2374ab3745e5264c3747e36674e7484) Signed-off-by: Scott Rifenbark <scott.m.rifenbark@intel.com> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <richard.purdie@linuxfoundation.org>

+ The naming scheme for kernel output binaries has been changed to
+ now include
+ <link linkend='var-PE'><filename>PE</filename></link> as part of the
+ filename:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ KERNEL_IMAGE_BASE_NAME ?= "${KERNEL_IMAGETYPE}-${PE}-${PV}-${PR}-${MACHINE}-${DATETIME}"
+ </literallayout>
+ </para>
+
+ <para>
+ Because the <filename>PE</filename> variable is not set by default,
+ these binary files could result with names that include two dash
+ characters.
+ Here is an example:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ bzImage--3.10.9+git0+cd502a8814_7144bcc4b8-r0-qemux86-64-20130830085431.bin
