Description

The kernel sprintf format string does not currently allow the use of periods.
This increases the difficulty of using the *printf family of functions when sharing code between user space and especially when trying to print strings safely.

It actually does, the problem was that our gcc wouldn't accept it as allowed format character, which since have been fixed.
