[PATCH] FS-Cache: print hexadecimal value for special cookies type




When building object-list.o, gcc 6 raises a warning on the sprintf call
in fscache_objlist_show:

  CC      fs/fscache/object-list.o
fs/fscache/object-list.c: In function ‘fscache_objlist_show’:
fs/fscache/object-list.c:265:19: warning: ‘sprintf’ may write a
terminating nul past the end of the destination [-Wformat-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
    sprintf(_type, "%02u", cookie->def->type);
    ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Moreover, the documentation says that we should have an hex value for
special cookies (see Documentation/filesystems/caching/fscache.txt).

Printing hexadecimal value for special cookies fixes the overflow
warning and complies with the documentation.
