The only problem I see would be if I upgrade my kernel from non-debian
sources. But then I'd be someone who knows what I'm doing, I suppose.
And what about systems with multiple kernel trees in /usr/src --
wouldn't you want each to have it's own /usr/include updated by make
before each build?
A brief look at the kernel source didn't answer these questions for
me. What does our kernel maintainer think.
