No, I'm proposing to use a uniform pr_fmt definition for
files that want a prefix on their logging messages.

At some point, the files that do not want a prefix
should be converted to use #define pr_fmt(fmt) fmt.

Repeating from another email, there are ~1500 files that
use pr_<level> without using pr_fmt. There are 335 files
that #define pr_fmt.

So I'm not saying that point in time is now.

Another way to do this would be to standardize
hwmon.h so it would add:
"#define pr_fmt(fmt) KBUILD_MODNAME ": " fmt"
in only 1 place.

So perhaps add this to include/linux/hwmon.h instead:

#if defined pr_fmt
#undef pr_fmt
#define pr_fmt(fmt) KBUILD_MODNAME ": " fmt
#endif
