I was sure it wouldn't hurt to ask on this ML...

Next question : where should I put this ?

says I should insert it in the initrd, but it's a bit difficult in my 
case (the same kernel/initrd is shared by many clients)...

I'd try to insert it on the PXE kernel command-line, but it's 
explicitely ignored by the kernel :
ml6000 kernel: Unknown boot option `via_rhine.avoid_D3=1': ignoring
...or implicitely, when I just add "avoid_D3=1" (ie. PXE does not boot 
after the next shutdown)
