I recently built a version of 6.1 testing and when I rebooted into it I got a Fail 
for the localnet bootscript. The error message was

RTNETLINK answers: File exists

Looking at the script, the lines in question were

ip link set lo up
ip addr add label lo dev lo

The solution to the problem was to change the order like so

ip addr add label lo dev lo
ip link set lo up

Like it says here http://www.policyrouting.org/iproute2.doc.html#ss9.12
This looks like a bug in the lfs-bootscripts-3.2.0 to me
