SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/5 v2] x86 boot: show pfn addresses in hex not decimal in some kernel info printks

I see some kernel hex prints either way, with or without, 0x.

In this case, in part because I was changing a decimal to a hex
format, and because it could be ambiguous (a hex number that
happened to use only [0-9] digits would be indistinguisable from
a decimal) I preferred using the 0x.

I see no clear answer here ... it seems to be a matter of taste.

I fixed the ones I noticed. If you see print formats that you
would like to change, I will likely be in agreement to such a
patch.
