Basically, after you built your kernel (as user sources), you need to:

media!sources:~$ chmod -R a+rX linux/include
media!sources:~$ chmod 755 linux/

I'm afraid, this really isn't documented, although the "Unreadable
kernel includes" message should give a sufficiently good hint. ;-)

I think we need to do one or more of the following:

1. Document kernel builds, at least the Owl specifics.

2. Change the default umask for user sources back to 022.

3. Get the chmod commands above into a script (but it is non-obvious
which one).
