Subject[PATCH 2.6.11.7] ATA-Over-Ethernet Root device
Date
From
This patch allows you to use ATA Over Ethernet as your root device,
with 'root=/dev/etherd/eX.Y/disc'

Limited testing, just for review.

Advantages:
1) Ext3 over AOE caches dirents, so it's faster and less network
traffic than NFS root
2) Smaller than NFS root code (for embedded systems)
3) Proper locking semantics with Ext3, ReiserFS, etc.

Description: ATA Over Ethernet root device
ie 'root=/dev/etherd/e0.0/disc' on the kernel command line
