Use nfsroot for diskless clients AND persistent storage

after successfully setting up FAI server version 5.9.4 I continued with
configuration for using nfsroot for diskless clients following this
wiki article.

This is working without problems, too.

However, the diskless client (in my case KVM instance for testing) has
*no persistent storage*.
Any change written is gone after client is rebooted.

Therefore my question is:
How can I configure FAI nfsroot to save changes in client persistently?
Is this related to NFS version?
(I'm using NFSv4 only according to this
<> guide.)
