[ipxe-devel] select a specific interface during initialization?

Hi list,

our  board  has multiple network chips: 6 x Intel 82574L and 1 x Intel
EG20T  pce-gbe(8086:8817,  currently not supported). Due to this, ipxe
spends enormously long time probing and initializing available network
interfaces,  which is not needed. Only one dedicated network interface
will be used for booting.
Is   there   a  way  to  [pre]select  a  single  network interface for
initialization and further use?
We're still trying to avoid patching the source code.

Thanks,

am
