Subject[PATCHv3 7/7] checkpatch: add pF/pf deprecation warning
Date
We deprecated '%pF/%pf' printk specifiers, since '%pS/%ps' is now smart
enough to handle function pointer dereference on platforms where such
dereference is required.

checkpatch warning example:

WARNING: Deprecated vsprintf pointer extension '%pF' - use %pS instead
