discover/pxe-parser: Retrieve configs asynchronously
Depending on the configuration of the DHCP server and the network, tftp requests made by the pxe parser can timeout. The pxe parser makes these requests synchronously so several timeouts can block the server completely for several minutes, leaving the server unresponsive to UI requests. Rework the pxe parser such that it handles the result of each tftp request in a callback, which can complete after iterate_parsers() has returned. Each callback is allocated its own conf_context which takes a talloc reference on the discover_context so that each callback can commit new boot options after the initial iterate loop has completed. This also means talloc_unlink must be used instead by the original parent of the discover_context. Signed-off-by: Samuel Mendoza-Jonas <>
