I was referring to the kernel headers used to build the tools as opposed to the building of the actual kernel.  I'll have to look through the crosstool scripts, but I'd guess that if the file already exists, it won't download it.  I'll probably bump up the version on my kernel to match what crosstool wants to see and then put it in the location that I specified in my crosstool configuration.
