That code layout is just ghastly. Please, if it can't be done nicely
in 80-cols then simply exceed the 80 cols.

And please don't use (or retain) printk_ratelimit(). It was a mistake.
A printk_ratelimt() site shares state with all other
printk_ratelimit() states, so if a random firewire driver is doing a lot of
printk_ratelimit() calls, your messages get suppressed! Use
printk_ratelimited() or __ratelimit().
