bisect_next_all: convert xsnprintf to xstrfmt
Git can't run bisect between 2048+ commits if use russian translation, because the translated string is too long for the fixed buffer it uses (this can be reproduced "LANG=ru_RU.UTF8 git bisect start v4.9 v4.8" on linux sources). Use xstrfmt() to format the message string to sufficiently sized buffer instead to fix this. Signed-off-by: Maxim Moseychuk <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
