Is there a glibc-kernheaders package created from 2.6 yet?  I can not find
one.  I understand that kernel developers have stated that use-space programs
should not include kernel headers but I don't understand who sanitizes them
for use in /usr/include/linux etc.  Is this the work of the glibc team?  Red
Hat?
