 This is what I meant. The problem seems to be related to "some 
change introduced _after_ 5.02-pre3". By "narrow down", I meant it 
regarding which version(s) of Syslinux to test (so to look up the 
issue over a narrower set of commits).

(Yes, it was already clear that ifcpu was not really the main issue.)

I'm not saying that there is necessarily a bug in Syslinux. Maybe 
5.10-pre2 is OK, but just "less tolerant"; I don't know. Whichever 
the case, the issue seems to be somehow related to some commit 
_after_ 5.02-pre3 (not just "on the user's side"), and this is the 
kind of observation I was looking for with my previous suggestion. If 
this was already clear before my suggestion, I apologize for wasting 
anyone's time.
