Each ROM have a need for identifier per build
This is described by @mcb30 at http://lists.ipxe.org/pipermail/ipxe-devel/2015-February/003978.html as well - I'm reading as using checksum here is not acceptable.

Also the comment above the rand line says this:
#... Must be unique for each $(BIN)/%.tmp,
# even within the same build run.
if checksum is used that comment needs update as well?

A patch that makes this stable for non roms would probably be acceptable, but for roms it won't be unless the reason for the buildids existence is solved some other way instead.
