When I saw this patch, I was already a bit skeptical about it, but I noticed
other architectures (e.g. avr32) are doing the same, so I didn't reply.

In my experience, "format '%zu' expects argument of type 'size_t', but
argument 3 has type 'unsigned int'" happens when using a compiler that
was not configured to use the correct type (should be unsigned long) for
size_t. Typically this happens when using a compiler not configured for
a Linux target.

Given 0day uses a compiler configured for Linux (or32-linux-gcc), your
patch seems to break such (correct) setups.

What kind of compiler are you using?

Gr{oetje,eeting}s,
