The problem is that in the LFS bootscripts, it kills all processes started
by init [K50sendsignals].  dhcpcd falls into this category.  The shutdown
network script at [K80network] is ran later, but dhcpcd has automatically
been shut down already.

People seem to propose moving K80 to K45 to prevent this error from
happening.  I personally do not know all the good/bad reasons for that [I
have heard that unmounting remotely mounted filesysetms after internet is
shutdown is probably bad].
