You are right, Ady. I have no way of knowing whether 6.04-pre1 works
or not. I've got this bug from a customer who has systems where
syslinux fails. Unfortunately I don't have access to these systems. I
sent them a 6.04-pre1 build, but I got mixed answers, I don't know for
sure if they tried it or not. They did try my later build based on
6.03 with my original patch. I also have no way of confirming what is
the impact of the efi32 build.

It's an omission on my end that I did not check what was in 6.04-pre1,
I assumed it did not work without proper investigation.

Let me double check what the status of 6.04-pre1 is. Maybe this patch
is not necessary at all!

Sorry for the churn.

Best Regards,
