    I kind of like the way the gtk and gnome packages have a script that
    can be run to get CFLAGS. You could have a kernel script that gets
    generated and installed when you do a 'make install' or
    'make modules_install' which would spit out the correct CFLAGS for the
    include files. It could be as easy as:

    echo "-I/home/bapper/src/linux-2.4.0/include"

    That way any Makefile can run the script on the command line for gcc:

    gcc -O2 `/lib/modules/kernel-includes` -c foo.c

    It could take some arguments to echo other flags such as CFLAGS the
    kernel uses to compile modules. And of course, this would have the
    added bonus of defining the architecture and optimizations that were
    used in the compiling of the kernel.
