SubjectBroadcast packages are ignored in Linux >= 2.1.17
Date
Ever since upgrading to Linux 2.1.17 and beyond (up to 2.1.20) I
noticed that I could no longer run a BOOTP server for my diskless
client. It appears that this is caused by the fact that Linux ignores
all incoming broadcast data. This is the output of "tcpdump":

tcpdump: listening on eth0
02:03:57.803154 0.0.0.0.0 > 255.255.255.255.bootps: (request) xid:0x5ef0200 secs:32 [|bootp]

I will now revert to 2.1.13, which I know to work fine.
