A patch which will hopefully fix the issue.
I don't think the patch posted is quite correct; can the customer test with
this attached patch instead?

I just applied Peter's patch and I got a undefined variable error.
I'll attach a patch which fixes this small problem.
I applied this patch on top of mkinitrd-22.214.171.124-28.src.rpm
The patch works for comma-separated mount options. But it doesn't work for
proto=tcp nor for proto=udp
proto=tcp,nolock would end up with the following error:
Mounting root filesystem.
unknown nfs mount parameter: proto=0
As a result the nfsroot filesystem cannot be mounted.
The nfs manpage says that both, "proto=tcp" and "tcp" can be used as mount option.
Therefore proto=tcp or proto=udp should also be handled. I'll attach a patch
which fixes this issue.
