I've noticed that when PXE booting Archlinux with a HTTPS mirror, the boot process stalls reproducibly when the "archiso_pxe_http" hook starts downloading airootfs.sfs from the mirror, unless I start moving and clicking the mouse and pressing random keys.

My hope is that this will be solved by next week's Linux 5.4:

Filing this bug so other people waste time on a known issue, and to make sure I don't forget to recheck when an Archlinux ISO with Linux 5.4 hits the repos.
This task depends upon
