Thanks to Michal Ptaszek for bringing this embarrassing formatting
error to my attention. Many DTrace/SystemTap trace strings are
incorrectly truncated at 4/8 bytes, depending on the CPU word size.
This patch expands the work from commit d032e09 by zheng siyao.

Michal's report to the erlang-bugs list can be found at:
http://erlang.org/pipermail/erlang-bugs/2014-March/004250.html

git fetch git://github.com/slfritchie/otp.git dtrace-formatting-refix

https://github.com/slfritchie/otp/compare/erlang:master...dtrace-formatting-refix
https://github.com/slfritchie/otp/compare/erlang:master...dtrace-formatting-refix.patch

It'd be really nice if this could squeak in before the 17 release
is frozen.  Many apologies if I've missed the deadline.

-Scott
