I didn't give a reason because it wouldn't change anything. I always
download the kernel sources myself and build my kernel from scratch. I
therefore don't want do download and install the header packages as
well. Besides which version of headers does libc6 use/need?

You may ask why I don't use any Debian kernel. Mostly because I need the
framebuffer early on and also use an USB keyboard on my desktop. Most of
the rest are just modules.
