There is also the ability to build a kernel-headers-`uname -r`
package with kernel-package. So if you really need the includes,
you should get them from there.
I think the symlink should point to
/usr/src/kernel-headers-`uname -r` because that is where the
include files get installed by make-kpkg generated .deb files.
And if you are using the official packages, you won't even get a
working link, because the kernel-sources are inside a compressed
tar file. But you get the headers in the kernel-headers-*
Maybe this link even does belong to the kernel-headers-* package?
