Looks good!

One thing I would recommend is that if for some reason the initramfs 
doesn't manage to mount the root device and it drops you to a shell when 
it encounters a problem, it can be very useful to have both lsmod and 
insmod available (maybe even rmmod, but that's not as critical). You are 
using kmod in LFS now, right? If so, you should be able to just symlink 
those as additions.
