Ok, then it is what i thought it to be. But I don't see why a handbuild 
kernel on LFS is better than a handbuild kernel on a Distro. 
I understand that the Distributor will probably do a quality assurance for 
their own kernels, but so do the maintainers of the kernel patches.

The standard kernel will work with any distro, patched or unpached.
