Hi Ken:

Thank you very much!!
Short of testing, your words are music to me!

For completeness,
My current (_problem_) 'mountvirtfs':         2012-01-16 13:34
New (lfs-bootscripts-20121013,untested, yet): 2012-06-17 14:40

Can you elaborate on that a little bit (*please* add more sweet music)?
[Assume it does solve the problem here on my "old" rig (E8400)]

PS  I find it a strange almost-coincidence:
On my "new" ASUS Ivy machine, the only Linux driver module I was
supposed to install separately was an RTL Ethernet Gigabit called
 r8168
