    SubjectRe: [PATCH] asm*/resource.h fix for glibc
    According to Jamie Lokier:

    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 ;)
