Hello Jose Luis. Thanks for your efforts to fix RC bugs. Unfortunately,
your patch is not an appropriate solution: linux-kernel-headers is a
build-essential package, so there is no need to build-depend on it,
since it's always present. However, it is going to be replaced soon by
linux-libc-dev; because of this, Lucas did a rebuild of the archive
using linux-libc-dev instead of linux-kernel-headers, to early detect
this kind of failures.
So this is a bug either in camstream for including an internal header of
the kernel, or in linux-libc-dev for not providing it (it it's public).
Somebody else more knowledgeable should know. :-)

Don't worry about what anybody else is going to do. The best way to
predict the future is to invent it.
