Not quite correct. The kernel sources are based on the 126.96.36.199 stable
release. We do not modify the information in the kernel makefile.

So the linux-source package contains the right source code but is missing the
debian build environment which would set the right version information.
To get sources which can be used to generate the correctly versioned packages,
either use the git tree from git://kernel.ubuntu.com/git/ubuntu-jaunty.git or
get the source package with "apt-get source linux-image-2.6.28-15-generic"
When all other means of communication fail, try words!
