Proposed patch for source/printing/print_generic.c

In my application, I have a Windows server process that interacts with a 
Linux client to inform the Windows user that their job was received. For 
this to work, I need to have the IP address of the print client. To do 
this, I added the following one-line patch to 
source/printing/print_generic.c that enables the macro %I. If possible, I 
would like it to become a standard part of the official release. As can be 
seen, the patch is for release 3.0.8.
