Commit db667a12 added a reference to ROM file
gpxe-eepro100-80862449.rom, but no such file. Intentional?

Yes. See http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2010-05/msg00418.html

Citation from my former mail:

Yes, it is missing. I did not add it for several reasons:

* The new variant i82801 (which needs the missing ROM) is currently not available
via model=i82801 (it can be selected by experts using other methods).

* Experts can get the missing ROM from ROM-o-matic.

* All three ROMs differ only in one or two bytes (device id). That's a waste
of binary space (56832 bytes!). Therefore I plan to remove all but the first
ROM file. The missing ones can be created by make or patched on the fly by
QEMU during load. Maybe it is also possible to create ROM files which support
more than one vendor/device entry - that would be the best solution.

There is still nothing new regarding these last points
because I did not spend any time on them.

Do you think there is urgent need for a
gpxe-eepro100-80862449.rom binary?
