[ipxe-devel] [PATCH] Increase link wait timeout

We use systems with three or more LAN ports where just one is connected in case we start iPXE.
Increasing the timeout is not acceptable.

This delay is unacceptable for timing out links that simply have no cable connected.  Could you try fixing the tg3 link-detection code instead?
