Subject: [PATCH v3 1/7] vsprintf: factorize "(null)" string

From: André Goddard Rosa <andre.goddard@...il.com>
Date: Tue, 3 Nov 2009 11:07:21 -0200
Subject: [PATCH v3 1/7] vsprintf: factorize "(null)" string
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Change "<NULL>" to "(null)" and make it a static const char[] hoping that
the compiler will make null_str a label to a read-only area containing it.

See:
http://people.redhat.com/drepper/dsohowto.pdf part 2.4.2
