The inclusion of the kernel headers into the package was an explicitly
temporary fix for version 3:20020927-2:
  * Build system cleanup.  Stop including anything from /usr/src/linux.
    We still define our own versions of things that should be included
    from /usr/src/sys, and this needs to be fixed, but I will wait until
    post sarge to do so.  (Closes: Bug#223164)

At this point the package should probably build-depend on
linux-kernel-headers and use the headers from that package in order to
avoid maintaining its own copy of the files.  However, I'm still not
convinced there needs to be anything linux specific in this package.
