i'm not saying this is any better than 'regular' nfsroot etc, but it's
how it is atm: if you boot a debian-live system, it will by itself
(live-boot) handle finding the rootfs and mounting it from the nfs
server, not the initramfs-tools mechanism.
if you specify initramfs-tools parameters for nfsroot, you end up with a
conflicting (or different) result. if you want debian-live booted over
nfs, only do what man live-boot tells you todo and nothing more and
at some point, the network booting code (and the networking code too)
needs really to be revised to profit more from initramfs-tools (and
dracut, when dracut is being used), but in the meantime do above.
