Just as a report, using my sbc8641d (powerpc dual core 7448) and as of this
commit it fails to NFS boot (according to git bisect).  Unclear to me why this
would trigger it.  The fail looks like:

IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
fsl-gianfar f8024000.ethernet eth0: Link is Up - 1Gbps/Full - flow control rx/tx
IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
IP-Config: Unable to set interface netmask (-22)

Board uses 1st gen FSL gianfar hardware.

Bisect log follows. Will look into it more as time permits.
