Yes, here's a fix:

#ifdef CONFIG_BOFH
printk("ufs_read_super: fscking Sun blows me\n");
#endif ^

(sorry, couldn't resist!)

Now for the serious answer. I agree with you, while this kind of
comments/messages look funny for some of us, they certainly are not for the
majority of users and may not be of good publicity to Linux... that's why
the kernel shall be humorous but «politically correct» (kind of).
