SubjectRe: [PATCH] asm*/resource.h fix for glibc

Oh yes. When you unpack a kernel in /usr/src, you overwrite the
kernel-headers package -> things are broken bigtime

Why. You don't NEED to have /usr/include/linux matching the kernel you
run or hack on. Read Linus' message. He's smarter than you ;)
