Etherboot 4.5.6 released

I have released Etherboot 4.5.6 at

This is another development release leading to 4.6.0.

Changes in this release:

+ More fixes from Klaus Espenlaub, based on bug reports by Doug Ambrisko
and others. Small cleanups in tulip.c. He also added a BACKOFF_LIMIT
parameter to the exponential backoff for retry intervals.

+ Christoph Willing sent in a fix for PCI NE2000s which forces 16-bit
transfer mode for PCI. This might make it work on some PCI NE2000s that
failed before, please test if you can.

+ Merged in TRY_FLOPPY_FIRST code from <>.
