Well, the kernel itself doesn't actually need libc at all (although the
makefiles need it to get ready to compile the kernel). In any case, the
missing kernel-headers package is stuck in the incoming directory which is
mirrored at ftp://ftp1.us.debian.org/pub/debian/Incoming (among other
places). And forcing the installation with an earlier version of the
headers will leave many header files broken when the references they
expect don't exist (read /usr/doc/libc6/FAQ.debian.gz for the reason).
