Hello Chris,

we are using NFS most of the time.

This can be solved by the attached package. When selected it automatically
enables the required kernel options, so you don't need to put them in your
default config, and has some scripts (uci-defaults and preinit),
to remove the network config of your boot interface and skips
the mounting of the flash overlay.

I hope this helps!
