Does anyone have a stable LFS partition?
I've been trying to use LFS recently, but from my experience,
LFS has a very short MTBF, ranging from hours to weeks.

Although LFS gives dramatic performance gain in some situations, it's
a pity we do not have an usable fsck_lfs and we are rendered to
recreate a filesystem. How hard will it be to implement writable fsck_lfs?
