It's probably worth pointing out that this actually fixes an
unconditional buffer overflow: fullname only has room for the two
strings and the '\n', but vsnprintf() is told that the buffer has
infinite size (well, INT_MAX), so there should be plenty of room to
append the '\0' after the '\n'.

Same here.

I'm a little surprised this hasn't been caugt by static analysis, I
thought gcc/coverity/smatch/whatnot had gotten pretty good at computing
the size of the output generated by a given format string with "known"
arguments and comparing to the size of the output buffer. Though of
course it does require the tool to be able to do symbolic manipulations,
in this case realizing that

outsize == strlen(x)+strlen(y)+1+1 > bufsize == strlen(x)+strlen(y)+1
