This quite frustrating. After recompiling, following the book to the 
letter, I still get a frozen LFS system.
One thing I do note however is that the freezing always occurs after 
systemd has detected that it is on a virtual machine. A number of error 
messages is send, but due to ratelimiting I can't see them because they 
are suppressed.

I had even rebuild everything with systemd-232, and that worked as 
before. But after 232, things started to behave strange. Now way to 
debug systemd, whatever I do....
