lib/vsprintf.c::vscanf had a bug in handling non-format characters.  It
was corrected in 2.4.13-pre3.  Try copying lib/vsprintf.c from a
current Linus kernel into your IA64 kernel.

Unrelated to the scanf problem.  Please do not #define those symbols
nor include modversions.h in modules, even sample ones, the symbols and
include should be handled via the command line.  That code will break
in kernel 2.5 with my new kernel build system.
