 I now think that Bruce fixed the /dev/pts problem (ticket #3102) in
r9868 by adding, or reinstating, the following lines in the
mountvirtfs script:

      # Copy devices that Udev >= 155 doesn't handle to /dev
      cp -a /lib/udev/devices/* /dev

 If I'm right, updating the LFS bootscripts to their current
versions will solve the problem.

 And if it does solve it, *please* be wary of updating udev to a
newer version in a completed system!  Do it if you have to, but
expect problems :)
