If my understanding is correct, your strategy is to just send data
within UDP packets with no additional information. That would work
fine in most cases on non-congestive LANs, but I don't think that is
good enough, generally speaking. Note that UDP packets can be sent in
random order, and UDP packets can be lost with no notification.

So, you have to think about a kind of protocol. It can be like
TFTP. Without such robustness, I don't want to incorporate your patch
into GRUB.
