Out of curiosity. What's the logic/requirement behind this
change ? Since we don't have a 'supported' 2.6.36 kernel, using
these would be a mismatch with what is actually booting on
the targets.

There's probably something I just don't understand here, so
apologies in advance for the (potentially) dumb question.

Cheers,

Bruce,
AFAIU the linux-libc-headers are independent from the running kernel. These are headers for libc.
But they aren't. The libc headers should be coupled to the
kernel version. New ABIs are established and glibc can detect
and deal with this, but you should never have a newer set of
headers than the running kernel.

To say the least, I'd like more explanation of this change.

Bruce


Thanks,
Nitin
