In the vein of this, would it be worth adding some modifier to %i4 to
print addresses for ftp helpers? That is, %u,%u,%u,%u. I think
there are currently two users of that format string after Joe's latest
round of updates.

The users are net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_ftp.c and
net/ipv4/netfilter/nf_nat_ftp.c. Prior to Joe's latest
changes ip_vs_ftp.c used %d,%d,%d,%d.
