That's fixed upstream in cvs but in a different way.
Actual LFS HZ patch change old_Hertz_hack, but that part should not be used
on modern kernel as name suggest. The real issue is that linux_version_code
shoud be set. That highly depend on tools used to compile and if
init_Linux_version run before or after init_libproc.

Attached minimal patch was made with a cvs import to git and using git
log -p, slightly manually changed because the NEWS change does not belong to
the right changeset.

There is other issues fixed in cvs tree (at least the forest_prefix warning)
Full diff from 3.2.8 to cvs is what I resolved to use. This is available at
