I have seen such a patch in some (old!) package for booting from a bootrom.
Here is a lsm:
Begin3
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
