The right fix is to delete ipconfig.c, it has been the right fix for a long
long time. There are initrd based bootp/dhcp setups that can also then mount
a root NFS partition and they do *not* need any kernel helper.

Indeed probably the biggest distro using nfs root (LTSP) doesn't use ipconfig
even on 2.4. 

DaveM can you just remove the thing. See for initrds that
don't need it in
