Patch for mbchk

Howdy there,
  It seems that mbchk would bomb if flags[2] was turned on in the
MultiBoot header.  As the MultiBoot specification defines it, and it is
not a reserved flag, mbchk should recognize it.  As to GRUB's _supporting_
it... it leaves the kernel in text mode, which the specification permits
even if a graphics mode is requested.  In any case, this patch fixes the
mbchk utility to properly see and recognize what flags[2] is.
