That's different.

Mandeep's patch addresses printks which didn't have a facility level.
Longer-term, all these should be fixed, so they have an explicit
facility level. I suppose that short-term it would make sense to
prefer to blurt these messages onto the console rather than hiding
them. Because they might be important. And if they weren't important,
they will then irritate enough people to get themselves fixed.
