OK, I've never had issues. What exactly are you doing and how is it going wrong?

You can specify it, but the default is just usr/, ie. in the kernel directory,
that is what I was proposing. (Actually it's $(objtree)/usr).

I think we can do that now, ie:
$ ls /usr/include/linux/membarrier.h
ls: cannot access /usr/include/linux/membarrier.h: No such file or directory
$ cd linux-next
$ make mrproper
$ make headers_install
$ ls usr/include/linux/membarrier.h
$ make -C tools/testing/selftests TARGETS=membarrier
make: Entering directory '/home/michael/work/topics/selftests/linux-next/tools/testing/selftests'
for TARGET in membarrier; do \
make -C $TARGET; \
make: Entering directory '/home/michael/work/topics/selftests/linux-next/tools/testing/selftests/membarrier'
gcc -g -I../../../../usr/include/ membarrier_test.c -o membarrier_test
make: Leaving directory '/home/michael/work/topics/selftests/linux-next/tools/testing/selftests/membarrier'
make: Leaving directory '/home/michael/work/topics/selftests/linux-next/tools/testing/selftests'
membarrier MEMBARRIER_CMD_QUERY failed. Function not implemented.
So that seems to be working for me. Are you doing some different work flow, or
am I just missing something?
I guess it probably doesn't work if you're using O=.. ?
