This will eventually work.  It requires some additional work to allow 
the underlying PXE stack to be conditionally unloaded depending upon 
whether or not iPXE has a native driver for the NIC.  (The complexity 
comes from the fact that the decision on whether or not to unload the 
NIC has to be taken before iPXE has been decompressed and fully loaded.)
