Subject[PATCH] tools lib traceevent: Fix buffer overflow in arg_eval
Date
Fix buffer overflow observed when running perf test.

The overflow is when trying to evaluate "1ULL << (64 - 1)" which
is resulting in -9223372036854775808 which overflows the 20 character
buffer.

If is possible this bug has been reported before but I still don't
see any fix checked in:
