Description

https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=318990

While it sounds like a good idea to extract the RFC1048 data from PXE, in the end it is not and it is causing lots of issues. Our pxeloader might need options which are incompatible with other pxe servers (for example iPXE, but not only).

Our pxe loaders are also now settings their own user class, so it is useful to issue our own pxe request at startup.
