netboot: Introduce support for nbd protocol v3


      The plan is to add a new cmdline argument ''nbd.v3' that could be parsed by the initrd script used for netboot.

      • if nbd.v3=1 , then script will try to use newstyle nbd protocol. It will request an image named "default-image", or another one if specified by argument "nbd.image=....."
      • otherwise, we fall back to the legacy client (implemented with busybox, no image name required) - this is the current required mode for CI.

      Amongst other features, the new nbd protocol will allow to serve different images to multiple boards with only one nbd server.

        No reviews matched the request. Check your Options in the drop-down menu of this sections header.
