In order to compile Busybox (at least the applets that need kernel headers), you have to have a copy of the kernel headers in your musl include path anyway; if the host system is glibc-based, /usr/include will not be used. So this isn't as big a burden as it sounds like. You're not modifying "your kernel headers" but just the copy installed with musl. This does not need root. Rich
