The port should be followed by ":<autoconf>", right?  I'm basing that on 
Documentation/nfsroot.txt .

Meh...that string is so bloody long I don't want to bother trying it since
I know that "ip=<my IP>:gibberish" works well enough...

Somebody else suggested "ip=<my IP> off"; that had no effect.  Neither did 
"ip=<my IP>::::::" or "ip=<my IP>::::::off" (which I have successfully
used with 2.4).

I'm just going to stick with my silly workaround.  Thanks to all for the
suggestions though.
