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:

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


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