SubjectRe: [PATCH v4 07/11] lib/vsprintf: Remove support for %pF and %pf in favour of %pS and %ps

Hmm, I see the following in master:

$> git grep %pF
tools/lib/traceevent/Documentation/libtraceevent-func_apis.txt:or events have "%pF" or "%pS" parameter in its format string. It is common to

$> git grep %pf
tools/lib/traceevent/event-parse.c: if (asprintf(&format, "%%pf: (NO FORMAT FOUND at %llx)\n", addr) < 0)
tools/lib/traceevent/event-parse.c: if (asprintf(&format, "%s: %s", "%pf", printk->printk) < 0)

I wonder how this is related to printk(). In each case, it seems
that libtraceevent somehow implements the non-standard kernel
%p mofifiers. It looks error-prone to keep another %pf user
with the old semantic around.

I am adding some tracing people into CC.

Best Regards,
Petr
