lualoader: Add loader_menu_multi_user_prompt config variable

Authored by jrtc27 on Sep 1 2022, 10:17 PM.



This allows the "Multi user" in "[B]oot Multi user" to be substituted
with another string, for example with "Installer" in installer media.
Note that this is lua-only at the moment, since loader.4th's menu.rc
defines the alternate name as Boot [M]ulti User, unlike lualoader which
leaves it as [B]oot Multi user. Ideally loader.4th would adopt the newer
and simpler lualoader behaviour and then it could gain support for this
option, but loader.4th is on the way out and isn't used by any official
installer media so this is not a significant concern.

I'd think that the loader_ prefix is a bit much...

This was to match loader_menu_frame/timeout_[xy]/title(_align)/[xy] that already exist to influence various ways the menu is displayed (although mostly in drawer.lua not menu.lua)

Seems fine to me, thanks!
