Built using jhalfs, with all final testsuites:
Errors (FWIW):
- glibc : 2 errors (+ 2 ignored), seems as usual
- coreutils : 1 error (test/misc/nohup)
- bash (a few, not sure, seems similar to usual)
- bc (a few, similar to usual)
- systemd : 2 failures : test-strv, test-journal-flush)
- utili-linux : 2 failures :last/last and last/ipv6

The first line of 7.8 Configuring the system hostname, has some weird typos:
"Durein gthe boot process, both Systemd and System V use the same file 
for establixhg..."

Same errors as xinglp at boot.

The initramfs built with BLFS instructions does not work (I guess it 
comes from the missing /lib/systemd-udevd, so maybe no big deal).
