 For me, either seems acceptable when 2.24 is released.  Either way,
perhaps better to explain that they fail "in chroot" rather than
allow people to think the LFS environment is inadequate ?

 I also noted "This is the last release where the old non-libmount
mount(8) implementation is supported and maintained."  Not sure if
that will change how 2.25 has to be built, but I guess time will
