Ah, README, I should read that ;-)

I got used to how tools/perf/ work, i.e. it is self sufficient wrt
in-flux stuff in the kernel, i.e. headers that are related to features
it supports and that are under constant improvements, such as eBPF, kvm,
syscall tables, etc.

Anyway, will do the headers_install step inside a container, to avoid
polluting my workstation.

Thanks for doing the respin and for the clarifications about building
