	ip_vs_dbg_addr() used compact form (%pI6c), so it would be
better to use %pISc and %pISpc everywhere in IPVS...

	Also, note that before now port was printed with %d and
ntohs() was used, now port should be in network order, so:

- ntohs() should be removed
- htons() should be added, if missing. At first look, this case
is not present in IPVS, we have only ntohs() usage
