[ipxe-devel] login-command breaks authentication-free iscsi boot

Hi list,

it seems that the "login"-command breaks iscsi boot without
authentication ("demo mode"):

"login" sets the variables "username" and "password". I use this for
securing some menu a bit (i know, this is easy to hack, but it stops the
children around me ;-) ).

But if i now use sanboot (or sanhook) for using some iscsi-disks the
login fail with the message "chap authentication failed". Avoiding the
login-command let me sanboot without problems.

So it seems, there is a double use of the vars username and password.
