Well, there is a workaround, but anyway...

When booting from network and not specifying nor netmask nor
gateway, I get message

Boot server not on local network and no default gateway configured!

but the server IS on the local network... I looked in nfsroot.c
and it appears netmask has the value INADDR_NONE = 0xffffffff,
thus the check for local network always fails.
