seems, that this issue isn't connected with BOOT* options at all.
my test host, holding diskless root is an i686 machine and diskless client is
an old i586 box. it seems, that some i686-optimized binary sneaked into
diskless client's root.
i've found this by booting that kernel on dual-xeon server lieng around here
but is still cannot understand, how this can be connected with this trap...
