I see that on 2008/05/01 you committed changes (authored by folks at
mind.be, it seems)
that let bootpc_call() terminate if no server can be contacted for some
This is different from pre 4.9 behavior which would keep on trying forever
until a server replied.
What was the rationale for this (AFAIK undocumented) change ?
IMO the old 'forever' loop made more sense.
