This fixes CVE-2016-7042.

Fix a short sprintf buffer in proc_keys_show().  If the gcc stack protector
is turned on, this can cause a panic due to stack corruption.

The problem is that xbuf[] is not big enough to hold a 64-bit timeout
rendered as weeks:

	(gdb) p 0xffffffffffffffffULL/(60*60*24*7)
	$2 = 30500568904943

That's 14 chars plus NUL, not 11 chars plus NUL.

Expand the buffer to 16 chars.

I think the unpatched code apparently works if the stack-protector is not
enabled because on a 32-bit machine the buffer won't be overflowed and on a
64-bit machine there's a 64-bit aligned pointer at one side and an int that
isn't checked again on the other side.

The panic incurred looks something like:

Kernel panic - not syncing: stack-protector: Kernel stack is corrupted in: ffffffff81352ebe
