Refresh PXE ROMs from the iPXE project (http://ipxe.org). This
includes moving eepro100 to use standard naming and including a
script to easily refresh PXE ROMs from either a local git tree
or the upstream project. We include the 'git describe' output
in the resulting product name, making it easy to identify and

The name used for eepro100 was the result of this discussion thread:

So you could as well change all other rom names.

iPXE default names like 80861209.rom are nice, too.

Anthony - I've skipped actually including the binary diffs here to
be friendly to the mailing list for review. You can reproduce them
with the included script. Note that pc-bios/gpxe-eepro100-80861209.rom
is moved to pc-bios/pxe-eepro100.bin when doing the commit. I'll be
happy to tar up the commit if you prefer. I've tested these ROMs using
ipxe v1.0.0-492-g23daab1.
