Shouldn't glibc-devel r: kernel-headers?

Glibc references some <asm/*.h> files. They are in kernel-headers
package. Shouldn't therefore glibc-devel require kernel-headers?

Additionally, do I really need 20 megs of includes for alpha, ppc, i960
etc? Maybe there should be just asm-i386 in kernel-headers for x86,
asm-ppc for ppc etc?

And yet another idea. Files outside <asm/*.h> are more or less private 
to the kernel. Maybe separate /usr/src/linux/include/asm into separate
package and make glibc-devel require it?
