    271273The Linux 'kbuild' system is used by the Linux kernel for kernel configuration. Linux kernel modules must use kbuild to stay compatible with the changes in the build infrastructure. A kernel module can be built stand-alone either 'in tree' (within the directory structure of the linux kernel) or 'out of tree' (aka 'external') meaning it exists in a directory of its own outside of the linux source tree.  **Kernel headers are not needed to build kernel modules, use the kernel source for this.**
