As a general rule, un*x kernel sources are self-contained, i.e. all
necessary library sources are included in the kernel source itself, partly
because it has to be statically linked, and partly to prevent bugs caused
by people compiling with a version of libc or whatever that doesn't match
the kernel sources. You _might_ need some header files for types or
something (I'm not sure), but other than that....
