The current Git branch should already be set through the GIT_BRANCH
definition in config.h (or patchlev.h).

Git tag probably isn't what you're looking for. Tags are "shortcuts"
that point to a specific commit, useful for tagging releases. However,
you might want to have a look at keyword expansion, which is documented
a little in the Git Book[1]. On the other hand, even that doesn't seem
to add RCS/SVN revision numbers.
