[PATCH] memtest86+ fix

From: Robert Millan
Subject: [PATCH] memtest86+ fix
Date: Wed, 2 Jan 2008 18:05:33 +0100
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.13 (2006-08-11)

This fixes boot for memtest86+ (and actually, Linux zImages since they were
all affected).

The problem was that the first code in grub_linux_boot_zimage copied the
payload from  0x100000 to 0x10000.  Since GRUB starts at 0x8200 and is
typicaly more than 8 kiB in size, it'll most likely overwrite part of it.

A bit of reestructuring was necessary to allow grub_dl_unload_all() to happen
unconditionally as first step, since the information on whether this is a
"big linux" was not promptly available.
