I think the idea makes a lot of sense: if a header is in uapi, we should
really export it. However, using a wildcard expression seems a bit
backwards here, I think we should make this implicit and not have the
Kbuild file at all.

The "header-y" syntax was originally added back when the uapi headers
were mixed with the internal headers in the same directory. After
David Howells introduced the separate directory for uapi, it has
become a bit redundant.

Can you try to modify scripts/Makefile.headersinst instead so we
can simply remove the Kbuild files entirely?
