Hi guys,

I have a few minor comments for LFS book.

In 6.2. Preparing Virtual Kernel File Systems, constructed mkdir path
always (for me) contains a double slash:
if [ -h $LFS/dev/shm ]; then
  mkdir -pv $LFS/$(readlink $LFS/dev/shm)
Should it be like  mkdir -pv $LFS$(readlink $LFS/dev/shm) ?

In ch. 8.2. Creating the /etc/fstab File:
While checking setting for my fstab I came across an old article about
dump option, see

Is there any particular reason to set dump=1 for root file system?
