[ipxe-devel] Can't revert 6324bd commit

That is probably because this is more of a development/git challenge than it
is an iPXE one.

It's very nice that the iPXE web-site has instructions for bisecting with
git, but how can it teach you how to write C or resolve conflicts involving
C code?  That seems out-of-scope for iPXE.  Every case will be different; no
general solution.

If you learn more about git, you might have a better chance of resolving git

If someone wants to do the work for you and resolve the conflicts and
publish a branch just for you, to satisfy your particular request, then
you'll be lucky.  Hopefully there aren't many such requests. :)

Yes, it would be nice to be able to revert one commit in ipxe, while there's
no confirmed solution available at the time. This would apply to all commits
in ipxe code, if that commit turns out to cause issue. There's nice
instruction in ipxe website on how to identify which commit is causing issue
using git bisect, but there's no instruction on how to revert that commit.
