The thing that I don't see is an actual configuration for the kernel to 
use the network.  Maybe I'm overlooking or completely misunderstanding it.

In the past, when I used an NFS root, I had to include parameters on the 
kernel command line to bring the network interface up, including IP, 
netmask.  I was using a directly attached (same subnet) NFS server, so I 
didn't need to mess with a default gateway.

I don't know if that helps or not.  Maybe it will give you a direction 
to look and rule things out.
