Week 10 (July 25 to July 31)

Day 1 (July 25)

Implemented address checks on incoming packets in IPv6. This stops gPXE processing every single packet it receives, which will help with iobuf usage - particularly on network with hubs rather than switches.

The code still accepts all multicast packets, but this should not be as big an issue as receiving “accidental” unicast packets.

Days 2 to 5 (July 26-29)

More patches went upstream this week - my local working copy is now in sync with the master repository too.

The remainder of the week I have been fighting the beginnings of the flu (which as of late Friday/early Saturday ended up being a lost battle :) ).
