That patch is indeed fine; this issue seems to be due to GCC 4.7.

I tried several prereleases of syslinux 4.06 in a VM and narrowed it
down the following commit which makes it work again:


I have attached the above patch and respective PKGBUILD changes to the
bug report [1]. I have also uploaded a prebuilt x86_64 package [2] for
anyone wanting to give it a quick test.
