I just noticed that my iPXE script containing a line "prompt --key 
0x197e [..]" stopped working. Pressing F12 acted like I was pressing a 
different key. This worked in my last build from June 11.

Thanks to the comprehensive documentation, I was able to bisect it to 
the following commit:

I build iPXE on Debian Bullseye amd64. The resulting binary (.iso) was 
booted on a Qemu VM, also amd64 architecture.

Just wanted to let you know. Thanks for this excellent piece of software!

Best regards,
