[PATCH 04/50] kobject: Add missing format attribute specifications

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Wed Mar 16 2011 - 17:12:01 EST

From: Bart Van Assche <bvanassche@xxxxxxx>

Several functions in <linux/kobject.h> accept printf-style arguments.
Some of these functions have been annotated with a format attribute
declaration while others have not been annotated. Add a format attribute
specification where it is missing.
