Bug#340657: /usr/src/linux information in Sarge release notes

Package: Release Notes for Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 (`sarge')

The following information/patch is desirable under 5.2 Upgrading to a 2.6 kernel:

If for any reason you are using software that refers to /usr/src/linux, note that is likely to contain out of date files or links to the previous version of the kernel after upgrading. Normally Debian packages do not use /usr/src/linux. If it is still needed you can probably delete the old folder (or rename it to, e.g. /usr/src/oldlinux just for safety) and then replace it with a symlink to the new kernel source, e.g.

cd /usr/src/
ln -s kernel-source-2.6.8 linux
