This commit also required following commit:

commit d2c9be89f8ebe7ebcc97676ac40f8dec1cf9b43a
Author: Ming Lei <ming.lei@redhat.com>
Date: Mon Nov 4 16:26:53 2019 +0800

blk-mq: make sure that line break can be printed

8962842ca5ab ("blk-mq: avoid sysfs buffer overflow with too many CPU cores")
avoids sysfs buffer overflow, and reserves one character for line break.
However, the last snprintf() doesn't get correct 'size' parameter passed
in, so fixed it.

Fixes: 8962842ca5ab ("blk-mq: avoid sysfs buffer overflow with too many CPU cores")

And this is also required for 4.4, 4.9 and 4.19.
Please apply.

Best regards,
Nobuhiro
