Subject[PATCH 1/2] uevent: don't pass envp_ext[] as format string in kobject_uevent_env()
kobject_uevent_env() uses envp_ext[] as verbatim format string which
can cause problems ranging from unexpectedly mangled string to oops if
a string in envp_ext[] contains substring which can be interpreted as
format. Fix it.
