It would be very useful to be able to assing a custom IP for nfs client (independent on restored system's IP) in any other way than setting it in libmondo-files.c; now it is rather impossible to test the restore process on a temporary machine without shutting down (or without ip conflict) the archived system.

Currenlty when using PXE, you can pass the IP conf of the restored machine. If you do not use PXE in itself, you should still be able to do the same by passing parameters to your init process at boot loader prompt. Cf:

What the original bug report imply is that the physical interface is fixed in that process, which it shouldn't.
