vsprintf: introduce %pf format specifier

A printf format specifier which would allow us to print a pure
function name has been suggested by Andrew Morton a couple of
months ago.

The current %pF is very convenient to print a function symbol,
but often we only want to print the name of the function, without
its asm offset.

That's what  %pf does in this patch.  The lowecase f has been chosen
for its intuitive meaning of a 'weak kind of %pF'.

The support for this new format would be welcome by the tracing code
where the need to print pure function names is often needed. This is
also true for other parts of the kernel:

$ git-grep -E "kallsyms_lookup\(.+?\)"
arch/blackfin/kernel/traps.c:   symname = kallsyms_lookup(address, &symsize, &offset, &modname, namebuf);
arch/powerpc/xmon/xmon.c:               name = kallsyms_lookup(pc, &size, &offset, NULL, tmpstr);
arch/sh/kernel/cpu/sh5/unwind.c:        sym = kallsyms_lookup(pc, NULL, &offset, NULL, namebuf);
arch/x86/kernel/ftrace.c:       kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long) syscall, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/kprobes.c:               sym = kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)p->addr, NULL,
kernel/lockdep.c:       return kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)key, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup((unsigned long)rec->ops->func, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(rec->ip, NULL, NULL, &modname, str);
kernel/trace/ftrace.c:  kallsyms_lookup(*ptr, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_functions.c: kallsyms_lookup(ip, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);
kernel/trace/trace_output.c:    kallsyms_lookup(address, NULL, NULL, NULL, str);

Changes in v2:

- Add the explanation of the %pf role for vsnprintf() and bstr_printf()

- Change the comments by dropping the "asm offset" notion and only
  define the %pf against the actual function offset notion.
