To summarize - you can use AFS for most of the root filesystem, the 
solution described above uses tftp, initrd and tarballs  for 
bootstrapping incrementally to a useful state, however AFS still uses 
user space daemons so its not a pure CONFIG_NFS_ROOT style arrangement 
that Dan was looking for, and does not appear to be an official project
