For the umpteenth time. You don't need these links to compile the
kernel. I haven't had those links on any of my systems in over a year
and it hasn't stopped me from compiling hundreds of kernels.
BTW, libc6 will use a different approach. I need to double check, but
I think it sucks all of the information it needs from the kernel
headers at build time. You won't need any kernel headers in
/usr/include, symlinked or otherwise, to compile programs with it.
