I was able to reproduce this issue. It looks like the 'optional'
keyword is creating some odd behavior. Thanks for letting us know.
Here's the patch to fix the problem.
Because of the way the Kconfig was rewritten, you'll have to re-enable
it after applying the patch, but it should fix the issue going

when using "make menuconfig", i selected
"add pxe rom" then i selected
the field below to set the path of the pxe rom image. i entered the
path, then pressed enter. as a result, the "add pxe rom" option was
disabled. i then re-enabled that option and saw the path that i entered.
if not paying attention, one might think they've enabled pxe, but fail
to enable it. i think this is likely a bug. i expected the pxe option to
not be disabled by entering a pxe image path.
