You can use bmodfs. That's a file provider that only uses memory
(l4/pkg/generic_fprov/examles/bmodfs). An usage example is on the
webpage (http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/L4/LinuxOnL4/use-2.6.shtml).

tftp will only interfere with the network card, so if you do not use
tftp, this will go away, yes. Note, start l4io with --noirq so that l4io
doesn't take the irqs.
