Bug#671878: partman-base: add NFS root support to partman

Package: partman-base
Severity: wishlist

Debian busybox recently added support for NFS mount, I've submitted
a wishlist bug for linux-2.6 to build nfs-modules udeb (#671874),
and here is a wishlist bug to add NFS root support to partman.

Some ideas:
- use DHCP root-path option (code 17) to get host IP and export
  name, or ask user (default host IP is gateway IP?).

A basic "mount -t nfs -o nolock PATH TARGET" is needed to mount the
fs. Maybe I should look into creating partman-nfs or something
myself, but I'm not sure where to start...
