You should not attempt to install such thing as a 2.6 kernel before you 
fully understand what you are doing.

1) Why do you need hotplug at all?
2) The hotplug scripts need patching to account for LFS specifics.

First, the /var/lock/subsys directory is RedHat-specific and all code 
related to it must be removed from third-party initscripts. Second, the 
return code of the scripts is not checked in RedHat and checked in LFS. 
Since the return code of the hotplug script is just bogus, edit it so 
that it always exits with status 0.
