Comment:

 Regarding your consolelog script, I like it.  The thread discusses the
 possibility of configuring the logging level via a sysctl parameter, but
 concludes it runs too late; it has to run after udev has finished,
 otherwise module parameters can't be set as their sysfs entries won't be
 present.  However, a lot of the kernel chatter comes from udev loading
 modules in the first place, so it'd make sense to set the kernel logging
 level *before* udev.  Therefore, I think the only sane solution is to have
 it set via its own bootscript.  Unless, of course, the udev bootscript
 temporarily sets the logging level low, like the modules scripts does
 (personally, I don't think it should be doing that - it should be set in
 one and only one place).  Dan, what other cleanups do you think S05modules
 could use?  Care to conjure up a patch and send it to lfs-dev for review?

 Thanks,

 Matt.
