On ia64/ppc64/parisc64 the kernel will crash here in the worst case, because
vsprintf() will try to read a pointer from that address and resolve it.
But you hand over a return address (_RET_IP_) which should be
resolved directly to a symbol. For that you need to use the %pS specifier,
which is what my patch does.

The patch has no negative effect on any platform. Output will still be the
same on x86/mips/arm/... as it has been before with %pF. The only positive
effect of the patch is that the seq_printf will now show correct output on
ia64/ppc64/parisc64 too.
