I guess I should use %.*pb and keep the field_width in case someone
manages to actually make bitmap_scnlistprintf() conform to it. The
precision is unused anyway.

The current implementation limits both (field_width and precision) to
s16, which will limit us to printing 32Kb bitmaps. If need arises we
could increase printf_spec size I guess.
