[ipxe-devel] IPXE dhcp authoritative bug ?

I have had non functional tftp from within ipxe from time to time and finally I think I
have tracked it down. Every now and then there is an non authoritative dhcp server
on the network and IPXE dhcp seems to prefer that one over the authoritative dhcp server.
The built-in PXE in BIOS/EFI prefers the authoritative dhcp server.

All in all, this seems like a bug to me in IPXE dhcp.

Question, it would be nice if one could inherit the IP params from BIOS(UEFI) PXE so
one can skip running dhcp in IPXE, is that possible ?
