Subject[PATCH 4/5] KVM: use %px to print token identifier
Currently token address is printed using %p. This exposes the address of
the token in dmesg and potentially leaks sensitive information to
userspace. In this instance the address is being used as a unique
identifier for the token, we can use the newly defined printk specifier
%px for exactly this purpose.

Use the new %px specifier to print a unique identifier for the token.
