Easy :) You don't need them anymore.
In stock circle it is common to use

function ()
  char buf[some_number];


This avoids overwriting the global buffers which may contain something
important.  With the sprintf+log function you no longer need the char buf[]
at the top of the function because you no longer to a sprintf() to a
temporary variable.

In a nutshell, delete those variables from the functions and save yourself
some memory and time allocating them. (albeit not so large)
