Did anyone test it? It does appear to look correct.

Also, Alexander, are all the mounts that are done in the init still 
necessary? I tried to mimic what you had in the shell init, but I recall 
that a couple of them were workarounds to various bugs.

I'm asking because on a recent CD I've tested, even though the file 
permissions are correct (I double and triple checked that), when you 
create an unprivleged 'lfs' user as per the case in the LFS book or the 
LiveCD scripts, su as that user, and try to compile a program, the 
compile will fail because the user gets 'Permission denied' errors when 
trying to read items in /usr/include/linux/
