There's up to two kernels involved here. The first (in toolchain_*) is
used for the kernel headers needed by uClibc / various packages, and
the second is the kernel for the target. These may or may not be same
version, depending on config (E.G. from the above I gather you are
using the "advanced" kernel config).
Normally it isn't a big deal if these versions don't match as the
syscall interface is very stable, but it could be an issue if your
kernel headers are very old compared to your kernel as you then don't
have the new features described in the headers.
It seems like the advanced kernel config should get the 2.6.28.x

So with a config selecting the advanced kernel config? I'll take a
look at it.
