Just curious whatever came of this coversation?  The whole 75% usage thing is
kinda crazy.  That makes LFS impracticle on any relatively small phyical disks.
I had this behavior just start happening to me, followed by a panic I couldn't
get a traceback on.  Upon reboot i get a panic in lfs_cleanerd now every time
it tried to mount that file sytem:

lfs_nextseg: no clean segments

newfs runs clean, though.

Should we be disabling lfs in GENERIC or putting some disclaimers in the man pages?
