By default Mageia, as well as other distributions, uses
'-Werror=format-security' for All package builds.

Am attaching a patch by Jani Välimaa <wally at mageia.org> which resolves
this issue, allowing '-Werror=format-security' to again be used.

The patch was done for the 3.15.0 release and as attached applies
cleanly using -p0 to current git.


Show respect for age.  Drink good Scotch for a change.
