I got a short chance to try this, this evening.  I had the kernel
install the headers in a directory right next to where the kernel tree
itself was extracted.  Then I symlinked "linux" to that install target
directory instead of the kernel extraction directory.  A few probably
minor compile warnings on occaisional files, but it seemed to
basically finish OK.  I did not use the patch.

I'll do some testing this weekend to be sure, and refine the script
that does the whole build and post that.  Then it's on to my early
user space ideas to be coded up.  I'm on the mailing list now, so I'll
watch and see if there's anything I can contribute to in the future.
