Bug #8797: loader: Support URI scheme for root-path in netbooting
pxeboot should default to TFTP in absence of root-path
Following the integration of #8797, the behaviour of `pxeboot` has changed in the absence of a root-path variable in the DHCP reply.
Previously this would default to using TFTP against the `next-server` or DHCP host and now it defaults to using NFS and trying to mount / from the `next-server`.
This new default will in all likelihood never work since the share would not be the root of the filesystem.
In the absence of a `root-path` option in the DHCP response, pxeboot should default to TFTP.
