If your installed kernel is 2.2.12, I think make-kpkg kernel_headers would
create kernel-headers package for 2.2.12. It would be a problem if the new
kernel is 2.2.13. I think it would be better to get kernel-headers 2.2.13
package (which I have done, so that I can load the correct modules for
kernel 2.2.13.)
