    [IPV4]: Updates to nfsroot documentation
    
    The difference between ip=off and ip=::::::off has been a cause of much
    confusion.  Document how each behaves, and do not contradict ourselves by
    saying that "off" is the default when in fact "any" is the default and is
    descibed as being so lower in the file.
