I don't believe the follow-on patches include "<linux/dynamic_printk.h>".
However, some of them do include a subsystem specific #include. For example,
the cpufreq subsystem include, <linux/dynamic_debug_cpufreq.h>:

+++ b/include/linux/dynamic_debug_cpufreq.h
@@ -0,0 +1,8 @@
+#define DYNAMIC_DEBUG_NUM_FLAGS "3"
+#define DYNAMIC_DEBUG_FLAG_NAMES "CPUFREQ_DEBUG_CORE,CPUFREQ_DEBUG_DRIVER,CPUFREQ_DEBUG_GOVERNOR"
+#define DYNAMIC_DEBUG_TYPE "2"
+#define DYNAMIC_DEBUG_MODNAME "cpufreq_shared"
+
+#ifdef CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEBUG
+#define DEBUG 1
+#endif
This header file conveys that cpufreq subsystem, wants non-default options-it
has 3 debugging flags that can be set, and all modules in the subsystem are
tied together using the module name: "cpufreq_shared".

I don't have an explicit #include of kernel.h in device.h b/c it already picked
up.

that is correct. any callers of dev_dbg() don't have to do anything. its really
only the more complex debugging, where there are flags or levels that need to
make adjustments to work with the new infrastructure.

thanks,
