Subject: tftpd modifications for easier sparc downloads

I did a minor patch for tftpd which creates the ability to read a file
/etc/tftpd.conf, structured thusly:
*.SUN4C ultra.img
*.SUN4M inetboot.SUN4M
93485B83* inetboot.SUN4
* inetboot.SUN4U

Note that some proms ask for /tftpboot/HEXIP.ARCH

You can find this patch at

This effectively means you need only maintain /etc/ethers to download a
sparclinux machine, not create a symlink for each host. (however, you have
to use arp and rarp by hand still... but I have a rarpd which I'll have
ready for release in a few days)
