Indeed, Uwe still needs to respond to how he wants to handle that. I
still prefer making it %pE, both because it's easier to convert integers
to ERR_PTRs than having to worry about the type of PTR_ERR() being long
and not int, and because alphanumerics after %p have been ignored for a
long time (10 years?) whether or not those characters have been
recognized as a %p extension, so nobody relies on %pE putting an E after
the %p output. It also keeps the non-standard extensions in the same
"namespace", so to speak.

Oh, 'E' is taken, well, make it 'e' then.
