Note that after the first time the user upgrades his kernel (e.g. for 
security reasons), he will end up with mismatched versions. It is not 
bad. IMHO, it is even educational and fool-proof to have mismatched 
versions, so that folks don't attempt to upgrade the headers together 
with the kernel.

As for the udev non-mess, upgrading to 2.6.14 without patches won't help.
