Subject[PATCH 3.16 117/133] IB/mlx4: fix sprintf format warning
3.16.51-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

commit d0dbf771309fecd73f4ac1566c1400cb12807ee2 upstream.

gcc-7 points out that a negative port_num value would overflow the
string buffer:

drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx4/sysfs.c: In function 'mlx4_ib_device_register_sysfs':
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx4/sysfs.c:251:16: error: 'sprintf' may write a terminating nul past the end of the destination [-Werror=format-overflow=]
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx4/sysfs.c:251:2: note: 'sprintf' output between 2 and 11 bytes into a destination of size 10
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx4/sysfs.c:303:17: error: 'sprintf' may write a terminating nul past the end of the destination [-Werror=format-overflow=]
drivers/infiniband/hw/mlx4/sysfs.c:303:3: note: 'sprintf' output between 2 and 11 bytes into a destination of size 10

While we should be able to assume that port_num is positive here, making
the buffer one byte longer has no downsides and avoids the warning.
