We do not do full DHCP at present and it is unclear whether this option is valid for BOOTP. We can return to it when http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/grub-devel/2016-03/msg00280.html is accepted. Please resend when full DHCP is supported; it is better to submit patch to grub-devel then, savannah bug tracker is not really suitable for patch reviews.

Hi all,

Is it possible to have net_bootp send option 93 (client architecture, rfc 4578)? This is useful in our netboot environment so that the dhcp can send the appropriate configurations.

Attached is a patch that does more or less what we need (at least for UEFI).
