I haven't tried it because I know it will fail if someone does
multiboot /payload
Then cmdline_argc = 0;
At the end of the loop p=cmdline;
and *(--p) = 0 will overwrite an unrelated byte and cmdline pointer
will be the same as boot_loader_name pointer and payload will recieve
"GRUB 1.96" as command line
