PXELINUX: handle OACK packets with extra NULs, cleaner TFTP errorsyslinux-3.82-pre5
There are apparently TFTP servers in the field which will send OACK packets with extra NUL bytes appended at the end. If we find an OACK packet where the only thing left at some point during processing is NULs, then just consider the packet processed. We have reported all TFTP protocol errors as "tsize required", which is definitely not true anymore. Change error code to 0 (undefined) and the error string to "TFTP error". When this code gets converted to C we'll do better. Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
