Maybe these usbnet_printk macros could use the proposed
netdev_printk macros instead.

http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/44955/

Maybe:

#define usbnet_dbg(usbnet, fmt, arg...) \
netdev_dbg((usbnet)->net, fmt, ##arg)
#define usbnet_err(usbnet, fmt, arg...) \
netdev_err((usbnet)->net, fmt, ##arg)
#define usbnet_warn(usbnet, fmt, arg...) \
netdev_err((usbnet)->net, fmt, ##arg)
#define usbnet_info(usbnet, fmt, arg...) \
netdev_info((usbnet)->net, fmt, ##arg)

or just use netdev_printks directly.

I neglected to mention that to make the use
style more like the rest of kernel source, this
patch also changes the macro definitions by
removing the \n added to the format and adds the
trailing "\n" to the callers.

Except for the first one. (oops)
