(2) is bogus. NO program needs to compile against the current kernel
headers. The only things that need to compile against the current
kernel headers are kernel modules and perhaps libc itself. As I put it
a few days ago--

So for your external modules, let me suggest the lovely
/lib/modules/{version}/build/include/. Recent-ish modutils required.
