I’ve looked at the source code /src/drivers/net/bnx2.c and it appears that there is no driver support for this card.

Hi welcome to the forum, I moved your new post into an already existing and recent thread that is about the exact same device. Using the search function you should be able to find this so creating a new thread wouldn't have been needed.

As you can see from this existing thread, there is in "most" boot scenarios no need to have a native driver in iPXE for iPXE to be usable.
Please read this thread and see if it can help you, if not provide the information that is missing in your case, such as which iPXE binary you are using.
