It turns out that the oldest version of VIM on Linux that I have available
to test is 7.3.547. This is on a system that was installed in 2014 (and
never updated). As far as I can tell, it (using readfile() with the
cmdline file) works as expected there.

I really wonder why it didn't work before that, although it probably has to
do with the nulls.
