Ipconfig when recieves rootpath option from dhcp it truncates it to quite short string (39 characters). It is slightly to short if you start passing rootpath both nfs server ip address and some nfs options through dhcp.

The length of this option is defined in usr/kinit/ipconfig/netdev.h
#define BPLEN           40

Could you bump it up to something higher? 256 might be enough
(rfc 2132 doesn't specify max length of this option)
