    fs: fix setserverprefs where long is larger than afs_int32
    Make the fscanf and scanf format specifiers match the type of the
    target variable.  This prevents trying to store a long int into an
    afs_int32 variable which may be smaller, and overwriting neighbouring
    data on the stack.
    The effect on a 64-bit Linux system was that the high bits of "rank"
    would overwrite the first 4 bytes of the scanned host name, causing
    setserverprefs to fail with:
    : couldn't resolve name.
