 About once a week, someone in the IRC room asks what package should be
 used for the "Linux 2.6.xx.x API Headers" page. Yes, the page title (at
 least the first half) is the same as the tarball name (just like all other
 packages) and yes, the page does mention using headers from the kernel
 source. However, there does still appear to be a bit of room for
 confusion. I think the page should explicitly state that the Linux kernel
 source is what should be used there, probably right after the first
 descriptive paragraph ("The Linux kernel needs to expose an (API) for the
 system's C library...").
