Yes. And also a little changes in loader.c

Sorry. Generate all cases maybe impossible. I did this before, and it
failed since some formats have long hash. Those formats will generate
many fuzzed hashes and they need large memory. So I changed to
generate one fuzzed hash one time and put it to ldr_load_pw_line().
