SubjectCompiler warning with extract-cert.c in recent linux-next builds
From
Over the past couple of days, linux-next builds have been turning up
this compile warning

buildlog-1441309952.txt:scripts/extract-cert.c: In function ‘write_cert’:
buildlog-1441309952.txt:scripts/extract-cert.c:89:2: warning: format
not a string literal and no format arguments [-Wformat-security]
buildlog-1441309952.txt- ERR(!i2d_X509_bio(wb, x509), cert_dst);
buildlog-1441309952.txt- ^

This is on an Ubuntu 15.04 installation, with

jim@krebstar:~/linux-next-2$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu 4.9.2-10ubuntu13) 4.9.2

Naively adding a "%s" format string silences the warning,

diff --git a/scripts/extract-cert.c b/scripts/extract-cert.c
index fd0db015c65c..907fbd888e7b 100644

if (kbuild_verbose)
fprintf(stderr, "Extracted cert: %s\n", buf);
}
but I won't pretend to understand the code in detail!
