Hi Deng and welcome to PulseAudio! :-)

More contributors are always welcome. As for GSoC, I have never mentored 
anyone and won't be able to do so this summer either, so I'll let 
somebody else answer to that.

As for the patch, I believe you did most things right. :-) Some people 
prefer you send the patch using "git send-email", but for me, it does 
not matter much.

As for using the PRI-prefixes, it seems we do not use this anywhere else 
in the code. Therefore I have two questions:

1) Do you think there is a risk that some compiler that we want to build 
PulseAudio under, does not support these prefixes (remember, this is not 
only used in Linux, but in Windows, Mac OS, OS/2 IIRC and others)?

2) Would "%llx" solve this warning equally well?
