i think you can savely ignore this message . i don't know what it means but
i got the same problem with LFS 4.0, LFS 4.1 and SUSE 7.3 . i searched 
the web
an found nothing except users having the same problem. it seems to do 
not affect anything
( in my case everything works fine ). i haven't seen this message since 
i've upgraded to kernel 2.5.72.
