This is partially related to this topic;

can someone tell me how is the device mapper used in the lfs livecd?

I'm also interested in why was it chosen. At least on my older laptops it tends to cause some "block reading errors" that fill the screen, and then the system hangs. On the other hand, cloop-based livecd's work fine on these lappies too..
