SubjectRe: [PATCH] vsprintf: avoid misleading "(null)" for %px
Hi,

I add people who actively commented on adding %px modifier,
see the thread starting at
https://lkml.kernel.org/r/1511921105-3647-5-git-send-email-me@tobin.cc

Just for reference. It seems to be related to the commit 9f36e2c448007b54
("printk: use %pK for /proc/kallsyms and /proc/modules").

By other words, this avoids regressions when people convert
%x to %px. Do I get it right, please?
