Bug#284670: kernel-headers-2.6.9-1-686: UTS_RELEASE incorrect

Package: kernel-headers-2.6.9-1-686
Version: 2.6.9-1
Severity: normal

When I upgraded to 2.6.9, I could not configure vmware which includes
building a kernel module. I found that the following patch fixed the
problem. Note that UTS_RELEASE is 2.6.8-1-686 in 2.6.8.
