teach ei_x_format to handle unary - and +
Teach the format string parser used for ei_x_format() and ei_x_format_wo_ver() about unary negative and positive operators on numbers. Previously, passing a negative numeric constant or a positive numeric constant with an explicit leading plus sign within the format string would cause these functions to fail. Augment the format_wo_ver unit test in the ei_format suite with a regression test for these cases. An easy way to reproduce the problem is to use erl_call: erl_call -s foo@bar -a 'erlang list_to_integer [-1]' Without this change, erl_call fails with a -1 exit status. With this change, it properly prints "-1".
