I've just had to add support for diag_vsnprintf to diag.h as part of
writing some logging code. We all know that sprintf, vsprintf and their
evil unchecked spawn are the source of lots of buffer overflow bugs -
so while I'm prepping a patch for this change is it worth adding
compiler warning attributes to diag_sprintf and diag_vsprintf to help
'discourage' their use?
