contradictory wording about system headers

Description

The very last comment ("Warning ...") at the end of Section 8.3.1 seems self-contradictory:

"The headers in the system's include directory should always be the ones against which Glibc was compiled, that is, the sanitised headers from this Linux kernel tarball. Therefore, they should never be replaced by either the raw kernel headers or any other kernel sanitized headers."

The "system's include directory", I take it, is our new LFS system in /mnt/lfs/include, i.e., NOT the headers in the kernel tarball.

Shouldn't "that is," be replaced with "not"? Also, perhaps eliminate any ambiguity by replacing (in the last sentence) "they" with "the system headers".

The system's 'include directory' is the new /usr/include/linux that we installed in Section 6.7. Linux-3.13.3 API Headers. That's what we built glibc against.

The 'raw kernel headers' are those in the tarball.

We can clarify the note.
