Though it is a pain when people do this and the output from each iteration
of the loop gets interleaved with other printk() output. Perhaps it is OK to
do multiple printk() calls in initialization code where it kernel is
mostly single
threaded. But it should be avoided in "oh dear, something bad happened" bits
of code (in case the badness isn't localized and all the other cpus are spitting
out partial messages too).
