vsprintf: Change struct printf_spec.precision from s8 to s16
Commit ef0658f3de484bf9b173639cd47544584e01efa5 changed precision from int to s8. There is existing kernel code that uses a larger precision. An example from the audit code: vsnprintf(...,..., " msg='%.1024s'", (char *)data); which overflows precision and truncates to nothing. Extending precision size fixes the audit system issue. Other changes: Change the size of the struct printf_spec.type from u16 to u8 so sizeof(struct printf_spec) stays as small as possible. Reorder the struct members so sizeof(struct printf_spec) remains 64 bits without alignment holes. Document the struct members a bit more.
