Using 'headers_check' basically boils down to the Makefile(s) calling a 
short script after 'headers_install' has been finished, namely, 
'scripts/hdrcheck.sh'. This is it in its entirety:


for FILE in `grep '^[ \t]*#[ \t]*include[ \t]*<' $2 | cut -f2 -d\< | cut 
-f1 -d\> | egrep ^linux\|^asm` ; do
     if [ ! -r $1/$FILE ]; then
         echo $2 requires $FILE, which does not exist in exported headers
         exit 1

It seems that it's just making use of coreutils and grep.
