OK, I understood only later that the bug was reported against an unknown
package. I suppose that the original submitter did try to install kernel
headers some time after installing the kernel package itself.

Meantime, I have reassigned to src:linux with the appropriate version in
experimental. I have left the severity to grave but it seems a bit
excessive since it only affects experimental.

I have tried to build linux-kbuild-3.15 but this is not that "easy".
