The last time we looked at using dev_printk() in ACPI,
it looked like the leading ACPI: would go away, and the
concern was that would hinder, rather than help, people
in reporting issues to the right place.

I have no problem with using dev_printk() where it makes sense,
but only if it makes the message more useful rather than
less useful.

BTW. I like the consistency provided by the series at hand.
I assume that it will go through Jesse's, and for that,
consider the relevant bits...
