Neither did I until a few weeks ago, when I started testing this
stuff...  ;-)  I should also note that the boot scripts are useless the
way they are, unless you have an initramfs.  The initramfs should
probably be added to BLFS also (preferably with a pointer to it in LFS
chapter 8, with an "if you need this" prefix, but I'm getting way ahead
of myself here).

Anyway: I can generate some patches, sure; I'll just have to look up the
various package build scripts to see how I set them up, and then get
going.  I'm guessing it'd be good to avoid applying them until the 6.3
stuff is out, right?  If so, then no huge hurry.
