In chapter07/kernel.txt:

# Most development systems (systems which compile packages) will leave
# the kernel source installed during normal operation. The traditional
# place to have kernel sources installed is /usr/src/linux. Here we will
# follow the convention, although you do not necessarily have to.

# And create a symlink to /usr/src/linux.

ln -s linux-2.6.10 /usr/src/linux

But in LFS:

Some kernel documentation recommends creating a symlink from
/usr/src/linux pointing to the kernel source directory.  
This is specific to kernels prior to the 2.6 series and
must not be created on an LFS system as it can cause
problems for packages you may wish to build once your base 
LFS system is complete.

What is correct for HLFS?
