Nah, it is just marked as "duplicate". As I said, there are several 
"reports" about this "Boot error" message in Ubuntu 15.10, but no 
package maintainer(s).

But nothing specific there, until and unless a package maintainer would 
care to follow this upstream project, or at least to get in touch with 
upstream Syslinux (by means of this Syslinux Mailing List).

Some reports were already opened by then, and they still have the same 

The only way to stop this useless amounts of reports is for someone 
from the Ubuntu QA Team to actually _do_ something about it: either to 
update from "3:6.03+dfsg-8ubuntu2" to "3:6.03+dfsg-11" (i.e. building 
with gcc 4.9) or by picking up the same upstream commits as Fedora 23 
does (we could help with that too, if someone in Ubuntu would care). 
Good luck with that.
