Sure thing: I will prepare git commits.

I am puzzled why you needed that change, Andreas.

Perhaps it depend on the versions of syslinux involved.  I tested on 
Jessie, with stable, testing and daily for amd64 and i386 - what did you 

Or perhaps it is related to choice and configuration of tftpd.  I use 
tftpd-hpa with TFTP_OPTIONS="--blocksize 1468 -v -v -v -v --secure" and 
adapting di-netboot-assistant to use /srv/tftp.
