Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Replying to [comment:11 alexander at linuxfromscratch.org]:
 > BLFS-6.2.0 is not only a follow-up to LFS-6.2. It would be stupid to
 exclude valid fixes for LFS-SVN problems that were added before branching.
 However, the "required" status of the patch is wrong for BLFS-6.2.0,
 thanks for the report. The same applies to the reiserfs patch, BTW.

 I'm sorry, but I have to disagree. I've been rejecting changes in regard
 to LFS-SVN for a long time now. BLFS-SVN will track LFS-SVN. IMO, it would
 be inconsistent for us to include something like the headers fixes for
 reiserfs when other programs are definitely broken in the same situation
 (vsftpd, for example). GCC-4.1 stuff comes to mind, too. The fixes are
 still going to be there in SVN. They're just not applicable to 6.2.0.

 I'm going to comment out these two changes.
