[syslinux] 5.01 BOOT_IMAGE= is missing in cmdline but path appears two times

Booting with 4.06 cmdline looks like:

# cat /proc/cmdline
archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201301
initrd=boot/i686/archiso.img console=ttyS0 BOOT_IMAGE=boot/i686/vmlinuz

while using 5.01:

# cat /proc/cmdline
boot/i686/vmlinuz boot/i686/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch
archisolabel=ARCH_201302 initrd=boot/i686/archiso.img console=ttyS0

And this cause some issues for cmdline parsing, I guess this is a bug right?

Relevant cfg file:

LABEL arch32
Boot the Arch Linux (i686) live medium. It allows you to install Arch
Linux or
perform system maintenance.
MENU LABEL Boot Arch Linux (i686)
LINUX boot/i686/vmlinuz
INITRD boot/i686/archiso.img
APPEND archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201301

If more info/test is needed please let me know. Thanks.
