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 127.0.0.1/8 label lo dev lo

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

ip addr add 127.0.0.1/8 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
