All files in the kernel tree which end in .h

Yes it will be.
/usr/src/linux holds the kernel tree.
If not, you are in over your head...

If you follow the LFS instructions *to the letter*, you won't have to.
I would strongly advise you to use a solid guide or manual for
installing this sort of thing until you know enough to do it on your own.
Installing an LFS system is *not* trivial - in the sense that I could
not do it without the documentation, and neither can you if you have
questions like these.
Not meant as criticism, but please... walk first, run later ;-)
