Subject[ 03/94] block: fix buffer overflow when printing partition UUIDs
3.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

commit 05c69d298c96703741cac9a5cbbf6c53bd55a6e2 upstream.

6d1d8050b4bc8 "block, partition: add partition_meta_info to hd_struct"
added part_unpack_uuid() which assumes that the passed in buffer has
enough space for sprintfing "%pU" - 37 characters including '\0'.

Unfortunately, b5af921ec0233 "init: add support for root devices
specified by partition UUID" supplied 33 bytes buffer to the function
leading to the following panic with stackprotector enabled.

Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack corrupted in: ffffffff81b14c7e

Increase the buffer size, remove the dangerous part_unpack_uuid() and
use snprintf() directly from printk_all_partitions().
