Well, it shouldn't be depending on the external stuff.
There should be a knob that is settable in Config to set if
kernel-headers-version == kernel-src-version (for TOOLCHAIN_SOURCE)
or not. If not or if TOOLCHAIN_EXTERNAL then use the given kernel-src-version
for building the kernel, keep using the kernel-headers-version for
headers-install (including unpacking, patching, etc. Both will need
this if kernel-headers-version != kernel-src-version, of course).

I'm just using the == case, so help with the other case is welcome
(including non-2.6 kernel-src, as some will most likely demand..)

cheers and TIA,
