I've got no idea what you mean here, Christoph, which is funny
since I built the kernel headers packages that Debian's using in the
first place. We don't use glibc-kernheaders. We use a package called
linux-kernel-headers, which is exactly what Andreas filed a bug
against in the first place.
Sid's /usr/include/asm doesn't use wrappers on most platforms. On ia32
it will if you've got amd64-libs-dev installed. Sparc does this in
You're right that we should do the same for ia32/amd64 and ppc/ppc64 as
we do for sparc.
