The thing that will make these uses smaller is to
convert them to functions.

There is a lot of extra duplicated "UBI-%s <msg_type>: "
constant string .text added.

Using a function uses a single copy of each prefix.

The __func__ variable can also be removed.
__builtin_return_address(0) may be substituted to save
a few more bytes per instance.

Something like:

(prototype)
__printf(2, 3)
void ubi_warn(struct ubi *ubi, const char *fmt, ...);

(implementation)
__printf(2, 3)
void ubi_warn(struct ubi *ubi, const char *fmt, ...)
{
struct va_format vaf;
va_list args;
int device;

va_start(args, format);

vaf.fmt = format;
vaf.va = &args;

if (!ubi)
device = UBI_MAX_DEVICE;
else
device = ubi->ubi_num;

pr_warn("UBI-%d warning: %pf: %pV",
device, __builtin_return_address(0), &vaf);

va_end(args);
}
