UNDI: baseio 2012 int 5 MTU 1514 type 1 "DIX+802.3" flags 0xcc1b

Using top-of-git I still get the same behavior.  Using that commit
plus the patch is slow but does not appear to fail as badly.  It's
able to fetch small files (pxechain.com) but I couldn't get a 2.2MiB
kernel to load.

Aside from the repeat packets in the capture, the other interesting
thing I saw was what appeared to be an attempted prefetch of a COM32
