Follow-up Comment #4, bug #50518 (project grub):

Please try attached patch that detects iPXE pseudo-block-io and skips it.
Unfortunately older versions of iPXE do not add PXE protocol to network
handle; this was added in

    [efi] Implement the EFI_PXE_BASE_CODE_PROTOCOL

So for example in my case booting still fails because now we are not able to
auto-configure network. So if boot fails for you with something like "root is
not set" - this is iPXE issue, you need to update it.
