Which is why the provably correct matters.

coccinelle transforms can be, but are not necessarily, provably correct.

The _show transforms done via the sysfs_emit_dev.cocci script are correct
as in commit aa838896d87a ("drivers core: Use sysfs_emit and sysfs_emit_at
for show(device *...) functions")

Worthwhile? A different question, but I think yes as it reduces the
overall question space of the existing other sprintf overrun possibilities.
