           Summary: ownership of /usr/include/{asm, linux}
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 3.0-pre3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
 Status Whiteboard:
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P4
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: highos at highos.com

The kernel, when packaged, is never owned by root:root, and i'm assuming, is 
the same UID/GID that Linus is, hence, when we just copy the files over, and 
keep the ownership, the files are not owned by root, which is a big no-no, in 
my book, anyways.. after the copy of files to /usr/include, a 'chown root:root 
/usr/include{asm|linux} -R' or something along those lines, should be run.
