Bug Description

[7 Feb 13:12] Laurynas Biveinis

5.6.16 fails to build with -DWITH_DEBUG=ON because:

on Ubuntu Quantal, 32 bits:

/home/jenkins/workspace/mysql-5.6-trunk/BUILD_TYPE/debug/Host/ubuntu-quantal-32bit/storage/innobase/fil/ In function ‘bool fil_user_tablespace_find_space_id(fsp_open_info*)’:
/home/jenkins/workspace/mysql-5.6-trunk/BUILD_TYPE/debug/Host/ubuntu-quantal-32bit/storage/innobase/fil/ error: format ‘%lu’ expects argument of type ‘long unsigned int’, but argument 4 has type ‘std::map<long unsigned int, long unsigned int>::size_type {aka unsigned int}’ [-Werror=format]

on CentOS 6, 32 bits

cc1plus: warnings being treated as errors
/home/jenkins/workspace/mysql-5.6-trunk/BUILD_TYPE/debug/Host/centos6-32/storage/innobase/fil/ In function 'bool fil_user_tablespace_find_space_id(fsp_open_info*)':
/home/jenkins/workspace/mysql-5.6-trunk/BUILD_TYPE/debug/Host/centos6-32/storage/innobase/fil/ error: format '%lu' expects type 'long unsigned int', but argument 4 has type 'size_t'
make[2]: *** [storage/innobase/CMakeFiles/innobase.dir/fil/] Error 1

Code in question is

  ib_logf(IB_LOG_LEVEL_INFO, "Page size: %lu, Possible space_id "
   "count:%lu", page_size, verify.size());

"%lu" is not a portable way to print size_t.

Regression introduced in rev 5703.

How to repeat:
Configure an build on a 32 bit host with -DWITH_DEBUG=ON.

Suggested fix:
AFAIK there is no portable printf format specifier for size_t. One has to cast size_t to something wide, e.g. ib_uint64_t and use UINT64PF.
