ipxe: use gcc6 for more compact code

We have a strict size limit of 64K which needs to be enforced for
pxe-virtio.rom for migration compatibility. The v4.8 gcc compiler
used in SLE12 doesn't produce as compact code as does more recent
gcc compilers, and the pxe-virtio.rom produced with it doesn't fit
in 64K anymore without taking extraordinary efforts. I was unable
to find enough opportunities in the ipxe code and data to reduce
its size, and found that using a more recent compiler would be the
best solution to keeping the rom size within the 64K size limit.
