I don't think I've ever seen the root path printed there (with nfsroot 
otherwise working), so I don't think that's the problem...  From looking 
at the code, it seems that the root path received from BOOTP is stored 
in a different variable than the path from the nfsroot boot option, and 
it's the former that gets printed there.

To Manjunath AM: does the ethernet work from U-Boot?  Can you verify 
that packets are being successfully sent and received under Linux?  If 
the only variable is the board, then the problem is probably not with 
NFS itself; there's probably something different in how the ethernet is 
hooked up on your board, or in how the board is being initialized.
