The DHCP server will return a string in the boot_file field. If you
want to indicate that this file should be obtained over http, the
easiest way to handle this is to provide a boot file in the form
(http,host)filename. Unfortunately dnsmasq uses commas to tokenise its
configuration parameters and there appears to be no way to override
that, which makes it impossible to provide a boot file in this form.
Allowing the use of an alternative character avoids this problem.
