[Buildroot] Advice on buildroot implementation

Does anyone have some advice on using buildroot to create a LiveCD filesystem?
Here are the requirements:
1) Universal boot support on any x86 hardware platform;
2) Read only (UnionFS or OverlayFS); and
2) NFS root capabilities after kernel/initrd launch (if the ISO is PXE-boostrapped)
The problems I am seeing with this approach so far (at least from the NFS
root perspective) is that things like /lib/firmware are not accessible during the
boot process which hangs the boot process.
Has anyone successfully created a buildroot install that can be used over a
read only NFS mount? How did you get around issues like eth0 firmware not
being accessible during the initial boot?
Thanks in advance
