Comment (by alexander at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Not really an objection, but:

  * Ihe regular disk boot (i.e., root=...) support is not tested on the
 LiveCD initramfs.
  * IMHO, Debian's yaird would be a better starting point.
  * The set of packages in the book is not frozen. Suppose one finds a bug
 in udev rules and wants to update rules in initramfs. Then cpio is
 definitely preferred to usr/gen_init_cpio.

 LVM or dmraid testing help will be available on the blfs-support list or
 via private mail, if needed.
