Didn't you break feature introduced in rev 1.21 of pxe.c ???
Allow kernels loaded by pxeboot, which was  compiled with 
LOADER_TFTP_SUPPORT, to stll be able to mount NFS root as prescribed by 
DCHP configuration. Since pxeboot is using TFTP to get to the files, 
pxeboot can not rely on NFS to provide it a root directory hande as a 
side effect. pxeboot has to  make RPC mount call itself.

With best regards,
Alexey Popov
