I've uploaded the patch to

I've also added a note to Bugzilla to integrate this patch in the book after 
the release of LFS-4 (there's just not enough time to test it out and to make 
the change).

In the mean time we can test this patch to make sure it does the right thing 
and make sure it's actually needed (no offense Tyler, it's not that we don't 
trust you).
