Question on netboot and discard tests

I'm testing a board that uses the i82559 and probes as type "0x1229"
(Intel Pro 10/100B/100+ Ethernet), currently disabled as "UNTESTED" in
Everything works fine, but I had some issues with the "discard" command.
First, DATA_SINK_HOST is hardwired to the IP address 188.8.131.52 with
no note about changing it.
Second, at first my server gave up after 256 UDP discards because of
inetd rate limiting. I saw no errors on the console though the discard
port was unreachable. That is expected since UDP in unreliable, right?
Maybe a note about inetd and the "-R" switch are in order.
I'll let the list know if the 0x1229 driver seems fine after I've
tested it some more.
