The messages you're linking to are about two different problems:

- ABI version mismatch between src:linux and src:linux-latest.  This
  will be fixed soon, as I've combined the linux and linux-latest
  source packages (only in experimental at the moment).

- Version mismatch between common (arch-independent) and flavour
  (arch-dependent) linux-headers packages.  This can't be fixed
  without changes to the way backports suites work.
