I wondered about the visibility tests when I saw the number of
failures. Yes, I've seen this, but I think it was on ppc64 multilib
clfs! The good news is that the basic system worked ok, as if the
failure might be in the test code. I haven't completed a regular LFS
with tests for some weeks, but I wouldn't expect these failures on x86.
Which kernel version are you using, and what host system and cpu ?
