SDL_JoystickOpen() error

Oddly enough, this problem is not occurring with 2.0.5. However, the code
in the SDL_SetError call (formatting spec "0x%8.8lx") looks to still be
there and needs fixing so the error codes show up correctly.

Hello,

I'm getting the following when trying to open a joystick that is DINPUT using
SDL 2.0.4 on Windows:

"IDirectInputDevice8::SetCooperativeLevel() DirectX error 0xx"

Any ideas why I'd be getting this kind of failure? SDL is init'd and XINPUT
joysticks seem to be working fine when I get this error, so it must be
something specific to DINPUT.

The error code is botched. It likely has something to do with this code in
SDL_dinputjoystick.c:

/* Convert a DirectInput return code to a text message */
static int
SetDIerror(const char *function, HRESULT code)
{
/*
return SDL_SetError("%s() [%s]: %s", function,
DXGetErrorString9A(code), DXGetErrorDescription9A(code));
*/
return SDL_SetError("%s() DirectX error 0x%8.8lx", function, code);
}

It looks like SDL_SetError() doesn't actually handle the "l", and as I
understand it, HRESULT is 32-bit anyway... so that probably explains why I'm
not seeing the actual error code from DINPUT.
