After upgrading to 10.10 Maverick, my NFS root is not mounted correctly during boot. What is the correct method?

10.04 and earlier I had my /etc/fstab setup to use /dev/nfs as my root device, but it looks like that no longer exists. Is anyone else using 10.10 for NFS boot?

It looks like the fstab format changed slightly. The following is a working line for the root partition:   /   nfs    rw,noatime,nolock,vers=3   0   0
