Bug Description

This mut be reported somewhere already, but I couldn't find the bug. Basically, linux-headers-$(abi)-flavor packages are pulled in by the linux-headers-$(flavor) metapackage, which is all well and good, but this has two effects:

1) linux-headers-$(abi)-flavor and linux-headers-$(abi) are marked autoinstalled (this is good and sane)
2) when the linux-headers-$(flavor) package is revved, old headers become candidates for autoremoval even if their corresponding kernel is still installed

The knock-on effects of (2) are obvious, I'd hope. If I have two kernels installed, but autoremove the headers for one of them, dkms won't update shiny new driver versions for the older kernel, X drivers and their kernels shims could get out of sync, etc.

If linux-image-3.2.0-28-generic were to suggest linux-headers-3.2.0-28-generic, then apt decides that you still want your headers right up until you remove your kernel, which resolves the above oops.

Disscussed this on IRC and it does seem reasonable. Suggests: will not cause these to be installed, but once they are they become held against autoremove until the kernel they are related to ages out. As they are large however we should make this change in step with the kernel reaper under:
