        Why is the kernel headers package still installing a build
 link?  The  Wiki article at
 states that we shall use /usr/src/linux-headers-foo as KSRC, and when
 you install a kernel headers _and a kernel image (in any order), the
 build link shall be correctly set.

        Still shipping a build link in the headers package is a bug,
 and is not supported. kernel-package by itself does not ship a link
 in the headers package, but handles the link in the postinsts, so
 that the image and header packages do not have to conflict.
