What "device driver developers"?  A Linux kernel driver is part of the
whole kernel image, you can't provide just header files to them, that
will not work at all as they can't build something that way, they need
the whole kernel source tree.

And 2.6.36 is very old, please just download the latest kernel release
from and point the developers at that as well.
