Some broken Intel E100 nics can't netboot from a modern TFTP server that
includes the blksize extension. I know OpenBSD's tftpd doesn't include
that extension, and tftp-hpa has an option to disable that extension.
I would be fine with replacing netkit-tftp, but replacing tftp-hpa is a
no-go for me.
