if at all, than: make INSTALL_HDR_PATH=/tools headers_install
as the include dir is created in the INSTALL_HDR_PATH.

If I remember right, at least in previous versions of the kernel sources
the target directory had been cleared before the headers were written.
That would be no good for the /tools/include dir but meaningless for the
newly created "dest" dir. So when first installing to a dummy-dir and
than copy over, no loss of files happens.
