$ git grep -ni pxeretry
com32/elflink/ldlinux/readconfig.c:1305:    else if (looking_at(p, "pxeretry"))
com32/elflink/ldlinux/readconfig.c:1306:        PXERetry =
atoi(skipspace(p + 8));

core/fs/pxe/pxe.c:275:    int i = PXERetry;

It's used in pxe_searchdir() to affect how many times it retries to
open a file and added in commit 4f989f247 for 4.03.
