%llx tends to be wrong when used for fixed size, like uint64_t,
variables, adding a warning to double check them.

It reminds me this old email:
http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/dev/2018-February/091483.html

The title mentions llx, but it should be %ll in general:

Using the %l or %ll format specifier is correct when the variable type is "long
int" or "long long int", it is only wrong if the variable type is fixed size
like 'unit64_t'.

My concern is above warning log may cause people change the correct usage.

That was why I tried to make wording less strict, more like a reminder to double
check the usage.

If we can check that format specifier is used for 'unit64_t' variable, that will
be the best solution but that is very hard to do.
Should we add a little more information to the message to prevent false hit on
the correct usage?

This is a question now: "should it be", why do you think it is strict?

Your message was:
"Please check %llx usage which tends to be wrong most of the times"
Mine:
"Using %l format, should it be %PRI*64?"

Trying to give more info about what can be wrong while keeping short:

"Using %l format, is it a long variable or should it be %PRI*64?
