Building with a custom git kernel the kernel headers that end up in the staging
directory to compile packages against are not from the kernel that I have
selected to build for the system. 

I am building with an older 2.6.35 kernel from our own git repo but the kernel
headers that packages are compiled against are from a newer version. The
problem showed up when tslib wouldn't load because the ev version differed and
when I check the staging directory sure enough the include/linux/input.h has a
different EV_VERSION than my 2.6 kernel.

I'm not sure where its pulling the headers from? I did a little digging but
couldn't figure out where it attempts to find them.

This is from the 2012.11.1 release, I downloaded the git version as well and
the same problem exists. I am cross compiling for armv5te on i.mx28 evk with
codesourcery toolchain downloaded by buildroot. I'd be happy to implement a
patch if someone could point in the right direction for where to look in the
build system to find where it pulls in the kernel headers.
