I described to problems, they shouldn't be related and I finally
understood that they are not:
1) NFSCLIENT in the kernel config will override attempts to use a memory
file as root device
2) Disabling NFSClIENT made the booting interface unavailable after
mounting the memory disk device
Problem 1 is still there - however 2 was a problem with my memory file
system. I created a new bare one just capable of running ifconfig and
both interfaces show up allthough not configured.
Since 2 is not a bug there is a fix to 1, namely disabling NFSCLIENT.
