Please remove this and use grub_command_t
I understand now.  What threw me off was seeing the 'hello' module use 'extcmd.'

Either ignore trailing argument or put both in one check != 1

It would be more efficient if you just try to open file and see what error you get. Actually you don't even need to distinguish between error cases here since you return the error you encountered. This will also save one useless alloc.
   /* Try to open 'hiberfil.sys' */
   hibr_file = grub_file_open (hibr_file_path);
   if (!hibr_file)
       if (grub_errno == GRUB_ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
         grub_error (GRUB_ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND, N_("'hiberfil.sys' not found"));
This overriding is unnecessary. FS code already provides this message
This was intentional:  the default message ('file not found') is not particularly helpful in this case since the
command's description nowhere mentions what file it's looking for (let alone that any file is needed for it to
function).  I've updated this section to pop the first error off the stack to eliminate the duplication (and added
a descriptive comment).
       goto exit;

   /* Try to read magic number of 'hiberfil.sys' */
   magic_size = sizeof (hibr_file_magic) - 1;
   grub_memset (hibr_file_magic, 0, sizeof (hibr_file_magic));

       if (!grub_errno)
         grub_error (GRUB_ERR_BAD_FILE_TYPE, N_("'hiberfil.sys' too small"));
       goto exit;

   /* Return SUCCESS if magic indicates file is active; else return FAILURE */
   if (!grub_strncasecmp ("hibr", hibr_file_magic, magic_size))
     grub_error (GRUB_ERR_NONE, "true");
     grub_error (GRUB_ERR_TEST_FAILURE, "false");

   /* Ensure unmanaged resources are cleaned up */
   if (partition_name)
     grub_free (partition_name);
   if (hibr_file_path)
     grub_free (hibr_file_path);
No need to check that argument to free is non-NULL.
   if (hibr_file)
     grub_file_close (hibr_file);

   return grub_errno;
