Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

We build against kernel header packages all along.
So that is expected to work.

In fact, I just counted in our build environment for the last build run
of 8.3.5, it does work just fine for currently 125 different kernel
versions/releases, including debian etch, lenny, bpo, ubuntu, sles,
rhel...  generating 746 kernel version/release/flavour modules total.
I don't think any of those has complete kernel-sources installed.

If you can't get it to work, how about complaining?

Talk with upstream.
We are here.
We often listen.
We sometimes even answer ;)

That would certainly be better than silently ignoring the "configure",
hoping for the best, and "sometimes" work.
