Hi,

I would thrown in an example for this description. 
Also useful to know if there is a existing driver that is broken
and hence we need to backport this.
If that is the case, please try to figure out an appropriate fixes
tag.

Comments inline + the email footer issue needs sorting out.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Given tmp0 == 0, this might be clearer as
			  return snprintf(buf, len, "-0.%09u", abs(tmp1));

As Andy said, this footer is a problem...
