A lot of you may have noticed the LLH kernel headers have not been 
updated as promised. With that in mind, I decided to do some tests over 
the past few days building LFS and CLFS with raw kernel headers. 
Unfortunately the raw kernel headers are not enough, but with minor 
modifications, they do work perfectly. I have tested 6 builds on 3 
different platforms, x86, Sparc, and MIPS. With no issues at all. I 
created a small bash script that will create the headers. This script is 
available at http://ftp.jg555.com/headers/headers.

What I ask from the more advanced members of LFS and CLFS is to give 
them a try, comment on them. Would they be useful to use as a temporary 
alternative. a viable alternative, hard to maintain, or is it a waste of 

My testing has only been on the LFS and CLFS builds, if someone is 
interested in doing builds beyond these books and sharing their results 
with the community and myself, I personally would appreciate it.

I'm only posting this because my results have been positive, and I think 
the community has a right to see what I've come up with in 18 hours that 
I've worked on this.
