There is more than one valid request going into this issue... although I
personally reject NFS boot as evil, it's an established "way".

The only person we heard is using it so far is Mickey Lauer.  I have
really great luck with SD Card rootfs solution instead and maybe that
can be a way forward for him too, in which case the way is clear.

If you want a tftp boot action in U-Boot, you know patches are welcome,
but I ain't going to write it: I think it is wrongheaded like NFS.
