We have no way to force a link-layer restart in iPXE, and therefore no way to explicitly trigger a restart of EAP authentication. If an iPXE script has performed some action that requires such a restart (e.g. registering a device such that the port VLAN assignment will be changed), then the only means currently available to effect the restart is to reboot the whole system. If iPXE is taking over a physical link already used by a preceding bootloader, then even a reboot may not work. In the EAP model, the supplicant is a pure responder and never initiates transmissions. EAPoL extends this to include an EAPoL-Start packet type that may be sent by the supplicant to (re)trigger EAP. Add support for sending EAPoL-Start packets at two-second intervals on links that are open and have reached physical link-up, but for which EAP has not yet completed. This allows "ifclose ; ifopen" to be used to restart the EAP process. Signed-off-by: Michael Brown <firstname.lastname@example.org>
