When the patch is a minor edit like this one, it usually isn't a very
serious problem to see the entire diff as part of the PR text IMHO :)

a. Your editor seems to be inserting trailing whitespace when lines are
wrapped. This means that the lines starting with + in the diff above
insert whitespace that someone will have to delete later.
b. Is "just press 4" some magic key combo for the boot loader of 5.X?
I've been using a lot of different keys: SPACE, RETURN, ESC are a few of
those. There is nothing different to the boot process of 5.X regarding
single-user mode AFAIK.
Did I miss/overlook something?
