Switching to -netdev is non-trivial for me, unfortunately. Anyway, it's
definitely a qemu bug - it happens on kernels 3.2 and 3.9 with 1.4.1,
but doesn't happen with qemu 0.15.0 or 1.5.0rc1.

I'll have a dig through git to see if I can identify the patch that
resolves it. It feels-like qemu sometimes stops reading from the tap
file descriptor between ipxe exiting and the linux kernel bringing up
the network interface, and never recovers from that.
