 From this discussion, it might need this:
  * libsa's tftp_open expects a pointer to netdev_sock, i.e. an (int *),
  * in f_devdata, a pointer to which gets handed down from devopen().
  * Do not expect booting via different methods to have the same
  * requirements or semantics.
  * net_tftp_bootp uses net_mountroot_bootp because that incidentially does
  * most of what it needs to do. It of course in no manner actually mounts
  * anything, all that routine actually does is prepare the socket for the
  * necessary net access, and print info for the user.
