New description:

 Section 8.3 of the LFS book recommends building a completely non-modular
 kernel.
 However, the LFS bootscripts assume that you have a kernel with module
 support -
 otherwise there are a bunch of errors every time you boot. I don't think
 it's a
 problem that breaks anything (I'm pretty sure it's just the bootscript
 that
 loads kernel modules, but I haven't really checked much) but errors are
 bad.
 Perhaps the kernel installation section of the book should say that you
 should
 compile module support even if you don't build anything in the kernel as a
 module.
