Please explain exactly what you think the return value should be, and
what *dst should be set to.

What nomem test? string_escape_mem with snprintf-like semantics cannot
return an error; that has to be checked by the caller.

In that case, I just did the same as is done for %pV, and prefer to keep

I hadn't looked for users in -next. I'll leave it to you to amend that
