nconfig: Fix segfault when help contains special characters
nconfig segfaults when help text contains the character '%'. For a quick example, navigate to the kernel compression options and get the help for bzip2. Doing so triggers a call to mvwprintw() with a string containing '%' and no extra arguments to fill in the specifier's value. Fix this case by printing the literal string retrieved from the kconfig. #0 0x00002b52b6b11d83 in vfprintf () from /lib/libc.so.6 #1 0x00002b52b6bad010 in __vsnprintf_chk () from /lib/libc.so.6 #2 0x00002b52b623991b in _nc_printf_string () from /lib/libncursesw.so.5 #3 0x00002b52b6234cff in vwprintw () from /lib/libncursesw.so.5 #4 0x00002b52b6234db9 in mvwprintw () from /lib/libncursesw.so.5 #5 0x00000000004151d8 in fill_window (win=0x21b64c0, text=0x21b62b0 "CONFIG_KERNEL_BZIP2:\n\nIts compression ratio and speed is intermediate.\nDecompression speed is slowest among the three.
