I think this person is simply trying to pull our chains. With a name
of ForrestG and with section 5.6 *clearly* saying that the purpose is
to sanitize the headers in *the Linux kernel source tarball*, I cannot
think this is a serious question.

I suggest we leave it to the OP to figure this out on his own. Though
I've given hints that will probably turn the light on for him/her.

I do think as others have also posted that the word "sanitizing" needs
an explanation.
