I wonder if this supporeted option (passing parametres from PXELinux to ipxe)

I have PXELinux boot:

LABEL startipxe
KERNEL ipxe.lkrn
APPEND set MYVAR some-data

And from chainloaded ipxe with embed script:

echo MYVAR: ${MYVAR}
... other stuff

I was unable to make this work (PXElinux from Ubuntu 20.04 syslinux package).

I solved this for myself by some small hack in ipxe code.

But I wonder if this should works out of the box?

Best regards
