They work if you're using a 2.1.x kernel.  Since plenty of people can be
expected to get Debian on multi-CD sets which include kernel sources, I
still believe we should ship them.

Also, what happens when Linus finally puts out the 2.2.0 kernel?  I don't
think we're going to be making a release at exactly the same time, then
people will start complaining that Debian doesn't work with Linux 2.2
