Subject: [PATCH v2 4/4] tracing: Fix number printing bug in print_synth_event()

Fix a varargs-related bug in print_synth_event() which resulted in
strange output and oopses on 32-bit x86 systems. The problem is that
trace_seq_printf() expects the varargs to match the format string, but
print_synth_event() was always passing u64 values regardless.  This
results in unspecified behavior when unpacking with va_arg() in
trace_seq_printf().

Add a function that takes the size into account when calling
trace_seq_printf().

Before:

  modprobe-1731  [003] ....   919.039758: gen_synth_test: next_pid_field=777(null)next_comm_field=hula hoops ts_ns=1000000 ts_ms=1000 cpu=3(null)my_string_field=thneed my_int_field=598(null)

After:

 insmod-1136  [001] ....    36.634590: gen_synth_test: next_pid_field=777 next_comm_field=hula hoops ts_ns=1000000 ts_ms=1000 cpu=1 my_string_field=thneed my_int_field=598
