Just in case if someone is not aware: syslinux (pxe, ext) shipped with
Fedora is in very good state - form about 2016 I am using the package
I suppose "very good state" is a relative term, upstream hasn't seen a
release since 2016 so is essentially "unmaintained", not sure it
supports secure boot, probably has a bunch of CVEs (see point about
maintenance). I think it only lives on in Fedora is because I think
it's used for some (.iso?) install method, AFIACT it's eventually
glued back together when it fails to build and is generally ignored.
