Hello Steve!

I sent off the same question to the linux-kernel mailinglist. Answer:
Yes, there is a bug in the comx.o modules but we have no one found yet
to fix it.  *argh*
Deactivated it and my LFS runs like never before... 

Open-source doesn't automatically mean "perfect" and "bugless".


Regards, Andreas
