Which kernel version you are trying to fix?

What I see for a long time in linux-next:

static char *ptr_to_id(char *buf, char *end, void *ptr, struct printf_spec spec)
const char *str = sizeof(ptr) == 8 ? "(____ptrval____)" : "(ptrval)";

brought by the commit 91efafb1dd8f ("lib/vsprintf: Replace space with
'_' before crng is ready").

With Best Regards,
