Mea culpa, and thank you for catching it! As I said in my earlier
comment, I tested this most extensively wrapped by some sprintf code
that liked 0 converted to a 0-length string, as that works naturally
with the ANSI spec for %.0u. And it turns out not to matter for the
usual printf code, as num_to_str special-cases that anyway.

The fix is straightforward:

diff --git a/lib/vsprintf.c b/lib/vsprintf.c
index e755083..9872855 100644
--- a/lib/vsprintf.c
+++ b/lib/vsprintf.c
@@ -180,8 +180,6 @@ char *put_dec_trunc8(char *buf, unsigned r)
*buf++ = q - 10*r;

- if (r == 0)
- return buf;
q = (r * 0x199a) >> 16; /* r <= 9999 */
*buf++ = (r - 10 * q) + '0';
if (q == 0)
Inspired by Michal Nazarewicz, I have some ideas for more tweaking to
that code.

AKPM: How should I submit this to you? Would you like it as a fixup
patch, or would you like a revised patch from baseline? You're free to
do either manually and add my Signed-off-by: to the result if you want
the fix faster.

I'm also working on addressing Denys Vlasenko's comments, but I figure
the bugfix is more urgent.
