This was my mistake. Try this instead:

In the 05-early.rules or 10-wait_for_sysfs.rules (depending on the LFS version), 
edit the line that talks about ENV{PHYSDEVBUS}=="?*" so that it reads in the 
following way:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM!="input", DEVPATH=="/devices/*", ENV{PHYSDEVBUS}=="?*", 

Does this remove the bug report?
