lib/vsprintf.c: handle invalid format specifiers more robustly

If we meet any invalid or unsupported format specifier, 'handling' it by
just printing it as a literal string is not safe: Presumably the format
string and the arguments passed gcc's type checking, but that means
something like sprintf(buf, "%n %pd", &intvar, dentry) would end up
interpreting &intvar as a struct dentry*.

When the offending specifier was %n it used to be at the end of the format
string, but we can't rely on that always being the case.  Also, gcc
doesn't complain about some more or less exotic qualifiers (or 'length
modifiers' in posix-speak) such as 'j' or 'q', but being unrecognized by
the kernel's printf implementation, they'd be interpreted as unknown
specifiers, and the rest of arguments would be interpreted wrongly.

So let's complain about anything we don't understand, not just %n, and
stop pretending that we'd be able to make sense of the rest of the
format/arguments.  If the offending specifier is in a printk() call we
unfortunately only get a "BUG: recent printk recursion!", but at least
direct users of the sprintf family will be caught.
