Subject: [PATCH 1/4] efi/libstub: fix harmless command line parsing bug

When we parse the 'efi=' command line parameter in the stub, we
fail to take spaces into account. Currently, the only way this
could result in unexpected behavior is when the string 'nochunk'
appears as a separate command line argument after 'efi=xxx,yyy,zzz ',
so this is harmless in practice. But let's fix it nonetheless.
