You definitely should not have to add any extra symlinks, maybe you are
missing something like, 'linux-kbuild-'

The kernel headers by themselves are not enough, the linux-kbuild
package contains some of the architecture independent kernel build
infrastructure that is also needed. But since it is showing CC [M] on
the compile line I would assume that that package is installed.

Something must be missing from the chroot environment, but I have no
idea what it may be. I wonder if your build is somehow picking up
headers from /usr/include/linux which are the cleaned up userspace
version and cannot be used for building kernel modules.

You said there were also lots of warnings previously, maybe there is a
more interesting one there.

btw. could you try,

    make clean
    make V=1

And send me the resulting output. The V=1 should make the build process
a bit more verbose, so it may be possible to see if it is picking up the
wrong headers somehow.
