I primarily merged it to my tree because
+  message = argv_concat(argv, argc, 1);
+  zlog(NULL, level, "%s", message ? message : "");
is easier to read than
-  zlog(NULL, level, "%s", ((message = argv_concat(argv, argc, 1)) ?  message : ""));

It's not like we pay money per byte or something...

The commit message is a bit misleading though, the behaviour of
the code doesn't change with regards to format characters in input.
Maybe the patch was different originally and it was altered in some
rebase :/
