Which patch in the series adds the definition of rust_fmt_argument?
Sorry, I haven't looked through the entire series yet, but I don't
think it was an earlier patch in the series. If it's later in the
series, you may want to rebase this to be after (or combine it with
the patch that provides the definition). For instance, let's say the
first half of this series was accepted/merged, but not the latter
half. It would be weird to provide such definitions/calls to undefined
symbols.
