[SeaBIOS] [PATCH] build: remove hardcoded timestamp

The timestamp and hostname carries no value for the default build. If
its really required in special environment, or if someone is emotionally
attached to such strings, it is is handled by existing logic a few lines
above: provide your own .version file

Once this patch is applied it is possible to get reproducible builds of
Xens hvmloader.
