           Summary: TFTP file system mount configuration
           Product: RTEMS
           Version: 4.10
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: RTEMS
            Status: ASSIGNED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P3
         Component: filesystem
        AssignedTo: chrisj at rtems.org
        ReportedBy: chrisj at rtems.org

Currently the TFTP file system is fixed to /TFTP and under that is the server
name and the file. This fixed format does not sit well with a mount
call/command that allows the file system to be under the control of the user.

This enhancement is to change the file system to allow mounting any where in
the file system and to have the device or source field be the host plus any
path. For example the mount command in the shell could be:

 $ mount -t tftpfs rtems.org:/ftp/pub/rtems/SOURCE /source

This comment mounts the RTEMS source directory if rtems.org allowed TFTP access
(which it does not) and source packages could be read from the local /source
directory. For example 'cat /source/README'.

The current behavior could be achieved with the following shell commands:

 $ mkdir /TFTP
 $ mkdir /TFTP/
 $ mount -t tftpfs /TFTP/

with the difference being you need a mount for each server.

This change will also allow host names rather than just IP addresses.
