Not sure if this is related, but the LFS install passes `DESTDIR=/' to
make since the default install target tries to restart udevd if you
install to the root directory.

You shouldn't need to do that. I'm not sure where you put the exit 0,
but the proper way to handle this now is with:

echo > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug

Then udev will handle hotplugging.
