How can I get iPXE to recognize link-local (RFC 3927) routes as actually 
being link-local.  For these, it shouldn't direct the packets to the 

Is there a way I can accomplish this?  If I just provide iPXE with a 
normal DHCP lease, it tries to route the link local packets to the 
gateway, which doesn't work.  I can't seem to find any commands that 
would allow adding a static route, nor does iPXE accept option 121.

For reference, the linux routing table entry for this looks like:

Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref Use Iface     U     1004 0        0 br0
