There is absolutely no reason to do this. In fact, it's death. Put the
kernel sources in your home directory or a scratch area. Leave
everything in /usr/src as it was when you installed your system.

Yep. Just...don't do that. /usr/src/linux is for your native sources
and headers. Do not cross-build kernels in /usr/src, ever.
