By cutting I mean to ask for a 1.1.1 source code release at:


I would certainly appreciate a refreshed LFS, but the problem I
experienced was downloading control-images-1.1.0 and aboriginal-1.4
and finding they don't work together.  I was further surprised to
learn that the binary .hdc files do not correspond to the source
code, but that at least helped me find the problem.

I haven't found any issues with the binary images, only the control
images source code.  I'm using the lfs-bootstrap as a guide to
creating my own control image.

I appreciate your explanation of the patch, I had wondering what
caused the change to a read/write root filesystem.
