 I agree, from memory (Alan's original comment burnt so much I won't
forget it) he had problems with people who followed the book but didn't
get it right, although that's not how he put it.

 If you use RH, all this is taken care of before you get to build a
kernel (we're talking aboout "bug reports" on the kernel mailing
list). I believe the original post on the l-k thread was from someone
building LFS whose kernel had problems, and who assumed it must be a
kernel problem - I don't remember seeing any postings from him on

 But the nature of lfs users is that we try to do things our own
way, so I don't think there is much we can do short-term to improve

 Out of the darkness a voice spake unto me, saying "smile, things could be
worse". So I smiled, and lo, things became worse.
