[PATCH 21/22] fscache: fix fscache_objlist_show format processing

From: Arnd Bergmann
Date: Fri Jul 14 2017 - 08:14:55 EST

gcc points out a minor bug in the handling of unknown
cookie types, which could result in a string overflow
when the integer is copied into a 3-byte string:

fs/fscache/object-list.c: In function 'fscache_objlist_show':
fs/fscache/object-list.c:265:19: error: 'sprintf' may write a terminating nul past the end of the destination [-Werror=format-overflow=]
sprintf(_type, "%02u", cookie->def->type);
fs/fscache/object-list.c:265:4: note: 'sprintf' output between 3 and 4 bytes into a destination of size 3

This is currently harmless as no code sets a type other
than 0 or 1, but it makes sense to use snprintf() here
to avoid overflowing the array if that changes.
