That is a difficult subject (similar to debugging messages). Usually
failure messages should be of higher importance than success
messages. Thus success messages could be KERN_INFO, while failure
messages (device not present / not detected) could be KERN_NOTICE. Of
course real problems can be KERN_WARN(ing) or KERN_ERR(or), too
(device setup incompatible, serious problem detected).
