Re: [PATCH] exec.c: print_section_info() format string fixes

I don't think the problem is fixed, just improved. The 08l / 016l test assumes that the address is <= 64 bits. Hence, I think some sort of FIXME should remain [...]

With regard to the FIXME comments, I've just committed the following:

	* exec.c (print_section_info): Add FIXME comments regarding format
	string choices.
