This series starts with some patches from Marc to improve the default
environment regarding net-based booting and it adds disk-based booting as well
as a default config. Based on that, there are further patches from me, which
add the possibility to use a global serverip-variable in case the TFTP/NFS
server is not the same as the DHCP server. To make that more robust, sanity
checks are added related to the string_to_ip function.

Marc Kleine-Budde (7):
  defaultenv: simplify scripting
  defaultenv: boot: add backwards compatibility for kernel_loc=net
  defaultenv: boot: add eth0 to ip configuration
  defaultenv: boot: add serverip to static ip configuration
  defaultenv: boot: add support to boot from disk
  defaultenv: update: add support to update kernel on disk
  defaultenv: add config template

Wolfram Sang (4):
  net: string_to_ip: add sanity check for > 255
  net: getenv_ip: check return value of string_to_ip
  defaultenv: place eth0.ethaddr more visibly
  net: dhcp: introduce global serverip variable
