Subject[PATCH] vsprintf: introduce %pf
Date
If I remember well, a format which could let us to print a pure
function name has been suggested by Andrew Morton some monthes ago.

The current %pF is very convenient to print a function symbol, but
often we only want to print the name of the function, without
its asm offset.

That's what does %pf in this patch.
The lowecase f has been chosen for its intuitive sense of a weak kind
of %pF

The support for this new format would be welcome for the tracing tree
where the need to print pure function names is often needed and also
on other parts:

$ git-grep -E "kallsyms_lookup\(.+?\)"
arch/blackfin/kernel/traps.c: symname = kallsyms_lookup(address, &symsize, &offset, &modname, namebuf);
arch/powerpc/xmon/xmon.c: name = kallsyms_lookup(pc, &size, &offset, NULL, tmpstr);
arch/sh/kernel/cpu/sh5/unwind.c: sym = kallsyms_lookup(pc, NULL, &offset, NULL, namebuf);
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long) syscall, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/kprobes.c: sym = kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)p->addr, NULL,
kernel/lockdep.c: return kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)key, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)rec->ops->func, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, &modname, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c: kallsyms_lookup(*ptr, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_functions.c: kallsyms_lookup(ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_output.c: kallsyms_lookup(address, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
