I've done treewide conversions using cocci.
It's used all over the place.
Especially in loops with arrays.

Sometimes the output is single line.
Sometimes multiple lines.

Look at the sample conversion of mem_sleep_show I posted earlier.

#ifdef CONFIG_SUSPEND
 static ssize_t mem_sleep_show(struct kobject *kobj, struct kobj_attribute *attr,
                              char *buf)
 {
-       char *s = buf;
+       char *pos = buf;
        suspend_state_t i;
 
        for (i = PM_SUSPEND_MIN; i < PM_SUSPEND_MAX; i++)
                if (mem_sleep_states[i]) {
                        const char *label = mem_sleep_states[i];
 
                        if (mem_sleep_current == i)
-                               s += sprintf(s, "[%s] ", label);
+                               pos += sysfs_emit(buf, pos, "[%s] ", label);
                        else
-                               s += sprintf(s, "%s ", label);
+                               pos += sysfs_emit(buf, pos, "%s ", label);
                }
 
        /* Convert the last space to a newline if needed. */
-       if (s != buf)
-               *(s-1) = '\n';
+       if (pos != buf)
+               *(pos - 1) = '\n';
 
-       return (s - buf);
+       return pos - buf;
 }
