  Scratch that in favour of NFSDISKLESS_IF_NAME, already defined.

  Actually, I wound up moving everything to compile/FOO/diskless.h,
and including that from swapnfs.c. Of course, I still have a bogus
SWAP_FH and ROOT_FH. Several people have booted stuff, so it must
not be too hard to decode what is there. Alas, NetBSD just does
getfh(2), but StunOS must do something else in mountd. Ick. 
  Adam said that he'd have a solution in a couple of days... can 
I wait? :-) 
  [progress report on ieX: I've reset the chip and gotten it configured.
Having not run into any difficulties (other than stupid typos), I'm
suspicious if it is actually working correctly, or I'm just getting
spoofed. Next stage is to actually make the thing transmit....]

  Answering one's own messages is *fun*
