/proc/sysvipc/shm: fix 32-bit truncation of segment sizes
sysvipc_shm_proc_show() picks between format strings (based on the expected maximum length of a SHM segment) in a way that prevents gcc from performing format checks on the seq_printf() parameters. This hid two format errors - shp->shm_segsz and shp->shm_nattach are both unsigned long, but were being printed as unsigned int and signed int respectively. This leads to 32-bit truncation of SHM segment sizes reported in /proc/sysvipc/shm. (And for nattach, but that's less of a problem for most users). This patch makes the format string directly visible to gcc's format specifier checker, and fixes the two broken format specifiers.
