Kernel messages are in general not sentences.

I thought of removing the parenteses, but if you look at the context of
the message then that only makes sense if other messages are modified at
the same time. The messages below appear together for my system and their
consistency could definitely be improved, but IMO that's better done in a
separate patch.

ACPI: CPU0 (power states: C1[C1] C2[C2] C3[C3])
processor LNXCPU:00: registered as cooling_device7
ACPI: Processor [CPU0] (supports 8 throttling states)
