This series replaces our current gPXE based PXE ROMs with iPXE
versions from the iPXE project (http://ipxe.org).  This version
adds ipxe to our submodules so it can be easily included in
releases.  I'm still including a script for updating these,
perhaps someone better with Makefiles can eventually adopt this
to a build target.

This email series is mainly for reference, there's too much
renaming and replacing binary files to send out to the mailing
list.  I'll strip out the binaries here so the rest can be
reviewed.  For the real code, please pull:

git://github.com/awilliam/qemu.git (ipxe branch)

Thanks to Anthony for already setting up an ipxe mirror.

Looks good to me. How different is this from what we've been shipping? Have you tested PXE boot from the builtin TFTP server and from an external one (like dnsmasq)?
