That's complete nonsense. If you want to use pieces of the kernel

use the kernel config tools, for example. There's no need to be *in* the
kernel repo.

Exactly. I do *not* want a abstraction layer just because somebody
wants to use it. It causes idiotic guards in the header files etc. We
already had that pain with the user-level header inclusions etc.

Just copy it.

The UAPI work and "make headers_install" already has cleaned things up immensely.
