Subject: [PATCH 1/4] vsprintf: Recursive vsnprintf: Add "%pV", struct va_format

Add the ability to print a format and va_list from a structure pointer

Allows __dev_printk to be implemented as a single printk while
minimizing string space duplication.

%pV should not be used without some mechanism to verify the
format and argument use ala __attribute__(format (printf(...))).
