Look at

It contains loop over all modules in core.img. Note that you cannot
pass file to it - scripts is intended to detect bootloaders installed
on a harddisk. I started at one point writing "core.img parser" based
on it, but got distracted.

Note that script expects that files starts with diskboot.img. You may
need to tweak it for PXE image.
