This almost sounds like a global APPEND was used.  Current Syslinux
should ignore the global APPEND for COM32 use but other config parsers
like (vesa)menu.c32 and gfxboot.c32 might not as they don't call by
LABEL but execute plain commands.

git-rebase did a far better job than a git-merge in this case.  Both are merged.
