PR/54053 CVS commit: src/sys/kern

The following reply was made to PR lib/54053; it has been noted by GNATS.

From: "Robert Elz" <>
Subject: PR/54053 CVS commit: src/sys/kern
Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2019 00:25:44 +0000

 Module Name:	src
 Committed By:	kre
 Date:		Tue Mar 12 00:25:44 UTC 2019
 Modified Files:
 	src/sys/kern: subr_humanize.c
 Log Message:
 This had a similar problem to that reported in PR lib/54053
 for the userland (libc) version of humanize_number(),
 except in a much more limited, and less harmful, way ...
 If the value to be printed was > ~0/10 (eg ~0 itself) and
 the buffer given was big enough to hold it, "umax" would overflow,
 and the expected result was not produced (here at least the effect was
 simply to scale the result for huge values by one unnecessary step,
 rather than maximally scale all values usually generating 0E, but
 incorrect nonetheless.)
