 Good advice.  I'd actually recommend 'make oldconfig' and then make
notes on *everything* that might be questionable, research, then set or
not in menuconfig, but that's just a variation - the important thing is not
to try to jump through too many different kernel versions in one go.

 Interestingly, on my resuscited ibook (powermac ide drives - I see those
are *now* in libata but I'm not sure when that happened) using the old ide
drives with essentially LFS-6.6 I didn't have any /dev/hd* devices.  It's
probably something I've broken in my scripts, but just in case it's a feature
of the newer udev I'll mention that I copped out - went back to chroot,
copied all the host's hd* devices to /lib/udev/devices..

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
