Bug Description

During iscsi root testing for quantal beta-1 I was unable to use ipxe to boot installed iSCSI root images backed by tgt.

Switching to the latest upstream snapshot fixed my issue so I think its worth considering a FFe for ipxe to fix this (and maybe other) issues as its not been updated since February 2012.

Also reported upstream: http://lists.ipxe.org/pipermail/ipxe-devel/2012-September/001796.html
