Symlinking isn't allowed anymore with the 2.6 kernel. In most cases it
will fail with missing references to asm or asm-generic or tell that you
aren't allowed to include kernel headers from userspace.

Please use the header files that come with your distro. Or link
/usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asmm to the include/linux and
include/asm directory from a 2.4 kernel (or copy the include files).
