The patch is problematic in several ways:
* nsub is an optional argument; its absence is not an error.
* The if branch you are patching doesn't actually use nsub; only the
first three arguments are passed to old_main().
* From a cursory gdb session, the reason crashme segfaults is that it
executes illegal instructions, not in the options parsing.
