Hmm, I suggest you point out the problem to Marillat.
I'm sure he'll want to know about it and fix it.

No, I wouldn't recommend doing this, the headers in the kernel are different
from the ones in /usr/include/linux. They may break other application
compiles if you copy them to /usr/include/linux.

I'm not a debian expert, but I assume that if you otherwise use the same
compile options as the debian mythtv packages, it won't break anything.
