Please dont. Providing of userspace headers is the task of a distribution. 
Many dsitros provide their own, maintained and working sets of kernel headers 
in userspace. 

Please depend on them (you dont want to upkeep the linux headers in your cvs 
everytime linus releases aa new version).

Redhat uses its own glibc-kernheaders, while debian has left its own version 
of glibc-kernheaedrs and they help maintain PLD's linux-libc-headers which 
will probably become the standard (apart from PLD afair ubuntu already uses 
it and debian is planning - thats what the maintainer of llh told me). 

Releases are available here: and the might answer 
further questions if not just mail me or mmazur at
