lfs-bootscripts beyond 2.0.x are intended for "unstable" LFS, which will
be udev/hotplug based. That assumes CONFIG_HOTPLUG is enabled in the kernel.
While I'm sure the scripts could be engineered to work reasonably well
in a non-hotplug environment, would there any particular advantage to
doing that? Would it not be better to just continue to release 2.0.x
releases for non-hotplug systems?
