No response from the gPXE mailing list and I couldn't find a searchable
archive, but googling eventually led me to this old post:

In short:

- Use undionly.kpxe instead of undionly.kkpxe.
- "set use-cached 1" isn't supported by undionly.kpxe, change to "set
use-cached 0" or remove.

After those changes HP BL460c G6 succesfully boots gpxelinux.0 and
fetches the config from the webserver.
