Subject[35/90] UBI: fix debugging messages
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Artem Bityutskiy <>

commit 72f0d453d81d35087b1d3ad7c8285628c2be6e1d upstream.

Patch ab50ff684707031ed4bad2fdd313208ae392e5bb broke UBI debugging messages:
before that commit when UBI debugging was enabled, users saw few useful
debugging messages after attaching an MTD device. However, that patch turned
'dbg_msg()' into 'pr_debug()', so to enable the debugging messages users have
to enable them first via /sys/kernel/debug/dynamic_debug/control, which is
very impractical.

This commit makes 'dbg_msg()' to use 'printk()' instead of 'pr_debug()', just
as it was before the breakage.
