I'm using tftp-hpa. I had disabled the blocksize option (-r blocksize) for
some reason that I can't remember now. Re-enabling it and setting to 1468
gives the same results. Considering I'm using http to transfer the kernels,
initrd and images, I don't think the slowness will be an problem. Thanks
for the suggestions though.
