This is on the TODO list, not yet implemented.


Instead of using:
ln -s ../src/linux/include/linux &&
ln -s ../src/linux/include/asm

Let's use:
ln -s $OLDPWD/include/linux &&
ln -s $OLDPWD/include/asm

Pro: no more assuming kernel headers are in /usr/src/linux. They could be 

Con: we'd be using an absolute path now.


I think the pro outweighs the con in this case.
