This update also fixes the following bugs:

Bug Fixes

BZ#980671, BZ#1085780
The pxelinux.0 file incorrectly used a BIOS interrupt call when booting up from a local hard drive through the Pre-Boot Execution Environment (PXE). As a consequence, the booting process became unresponsive. With this update, the behavior of pxelinux.0 has been fixed and PXE booting now functions as expected.
BZ#989867
The syslinux-tftpboot program incorrectly installed tftp files into the /tftpboot/ directory. Consequently, these files could not be located and used by the appropriate programs, such as tftp. With this update, tftp files are installed into the /var/lib/tftpboot/ directory as expected.
The syslinux packages have been upgraded to upstream version 4.04, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version, including a patch that corrects the PXE chain functionality. (BZ#970946)
Users of syslinux are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
