Well, I think there are two possible answers:
1) it's usable as long as you don't go near/over 70% full on the LFS partition.
2) if you intend to go above 70% capacity on the LFS partition, Don't
Use LFS. It will go crazy, panic the kernel, cause all manner of bad

As for when... no idea. I've been waiting for a couple years now, and
haven't seen any signifigant progress other than LFS getting tied into
the UBC stuff.
