Thanks. :)

Yeah, sorry, I can put it back. Still, I can get essentially the same 
functionality by using a non-existent target somewhere, like 'stop'.

Yeah, I meant to put GRUB back in to the main build order in the spirit 
of 'sticking closely to LFS', but forgot. Will put it in on the next commit.

Alright, noted. Also, are any of these changes that did exist in the CD 
suitable for LFS? I'd be happy to keep functionality you obviously 
worked hard to introduce to the CD if we can get the changes pushed 
upstream, or at least such that the book allows for this sort of deviation.

Right. Putting GRUB back into the normal build order.

I see.

This ticket says the issue was fixed with the update to

OK. I did not have a plan. I realized some of these items were necessary 
to operation of the CD and were allowable due to their being a matter of 
configuration options. Which is why I commented them out instead of 
removing them entirely. I meant to ask you your opinion about their 
compatibility with current udev and with the LFS book itself.

Would you mind doing that?
