    What exactly is the point of a mechanical conversion from
    printk(KERN_ ...) to pr_...?

    I can see the value of the pr_ macros from new code in that the
    temptation to put a comma after KERN_.. for some people is irresistible
    so it's an interface that's very easy to misuse, but given that we have
    correct uses, why convert them?
