The vast majority of programs you compile will be happier with header files
coupled to glibc compile.

A few programs such as hdparm are somewhat more likely to compile and/or
work properly when compiled against headers of current kernel. 

Therefore , you just need to include headers for current kernel in the few
programs that need it with small mod to makefile.
