[ipxe-devel] Hang during 'establishing link' using ASIX USB dongle and undi driver

So it seems the ASIX dongle can be initialized just once, by the PXE rom in
the BIOS. So I'm going to try burning ipxe to a USB stick, then booting
from that.

Building a usb image should be the same, right? Just use
target bin/undionly.usb instead? iPXE starts OK doing that, but then
'ifconf' shows no network devices. Is there something I need to do to get
my USB dongle to show up?
