    I have seen such a patch in some (old!) package for booting from a bootrom.
    Here is a lsm:
    Title: netboot-nfs
    Version: 1.2
    Entered-date: 04 Mar 1995
    Description: This package allows booting of a diskless computer over a
    network, mounting the root filesystem via NFS and using a
    swap file on a NFS filesystem. It includes the necessary
    patches for Linux kernel 1.1.92, and tools to boot a disk-
    less computer.
    Keywords: booting, boot-rom, swap, root-fs, nfs, diskless

    189kB netboot-nfs.tar.gz
    1082 netboot-nfs.lsm
    Original-site: /pub/Linux/system/Linux-boot
    Platform: MSDOS C-compiler and assembler necessary for recompiling boot
    rom when not using a WD80*3 network interface card (for which
    binaries are included)
