 I'll be happy to go with the expected behaviour on LFS, if not 
separating date changes is expected, particularly if there is concern 
about wasting scarce revision numbers :)  Just need to remember which 
book I'm editing.

 Maybe I can recover a couple of revision numbers, at least for the 
udev_update branch, if I put the kernel, the somewhat 
consequential change to iproute2 (the name suggests it might be a bad 
idea to upgrade to iproute2-2.6.16 with an older kernel), and the 
totally unrelated udev update into a single revision.

OK, I jest about making a multi-item revision, but sometimes I haven't 
been aware of expected procedures (another reason to edit the editors' 
guide re branches), and sometimes current practice evolves.
