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?
