I'm fine with pr_warn, but I'm curious to what you mean by "not so
meaningful"? A WARN() will cause a dump stack, which usually shows up
as a bug in systems and more likely to be seen. But if someone is
adding this to the kernel command line and it's not working, they
should be looking for the tracer name within the dmesg anyway.

Also, I'm currently at OSS in LA and hopefully I don't lose this patch.
If you don't see anything by next Monday from me, feel free to send me a
reminder ping.
