Subject[PATCH 3.2 156/199] lib/vsprintf.c: improve sanity check in vsnprintf()
3.2.87-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Rasmus Villemoes <linux@rasmusvillemoes.dk>

commit 2aa2f9e21e4eb25c720b2e7d80f8929638f6ad73 upstream.

On 64 bit, size may very well be huge even if bit 31 happens to be 0.
Somehow it doesn't feel right that one can pass a 5 GiB buffer but not a
3 GiB one. So cap at INT_MAX as was probably the intention all along.
This is also the made-up value passed by sprintf and vsprintf.
