    It also allows you to modify pr_fmt at the top of the file or
    elsewhere and have it influence the output, as just one example
    of how it's better.

    As a maintainer you can only take one of two positions:

    1) Accept all properly written patches that convert code over to use
    the new and recommended way of doing things, such as pr_info() et

    2) Advocate on linux-kernel to remove these new interfaces or improve
    them if you don't find them suitable, and then once suitable go
    back to #1.

    Just keeping things the way they are because you simply feel like it
    is really not acceptable Ted.
