Subject: [PATCH v4 08/12] vsprintf: reuse almost identical simple_strtoulX() functions

The difference between simple_strtoul() and simple_strtoull() is just
the size of the variable used to keep track of the sum of characters
converted to numbers:

unsigned long simple_strtoul() {...}
unsigned long long simple_strtoull(){...}

Both are same size (8 bytes) on my Core 2/gcc 4.4.1.
Overflow condition is not checked on both functions, so an extremely large
string can break these functions so that they don't even notice it.

As we do not care for overflowing on these functions, always keep the sum
using the larger variable around (unsigned long long) on simple_strtoull()
and cast it to (unsigned long) on simple_strtoul(), which then becomes
just a wrapper around simple_strtoull().

Code size decreases by 304 bytes:
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  15543       0       8   15551    3cbf lib/vsprintf.o-before
  15239       0       8   15247    3b8f lib/vsprintf.o-after

Removed unnecessary cast as noticed by Jan Engelhardt.
