I think there's probably a class of defects that could
be found something like this in coccinelle:

@@
type T;
T *t;
@@

* \(netdev_emerg\|netdev_crit\|netdev_alert\|netdev_err\|netdev_notice\|netdev_warn\|netdev_warn\|netdev_info\|netdev_dbg\|dev_emerg\|dev_crit\|dev_alert\|dev_err\|dev_notice\|dev_warn\|dev_warn\|dev_info\|dev_dbg\|pr_emerg\|pr_crit\|pr_alert\|pr_err\|pr_notice\|pr_warn\|pr_warning\|pr_warn\|pr_info\|pr_debug\|printk\|vsprintf\|vscnprintf\|vsprintf\)(..., &t, ...);

This finds a few like:

diff -u -p drivers//dma/pxa_dma.c /tmp/nothing//dma/pxa_dma.c
--- drivers//dma/pxa_dma.c
+++ /tmp/nothing//dma/pxa_dma.c
@@ -640,9 +640,6 @@ static unsigned int clear_chan_irq(struc
dcsr = phy_readl_relaxed(phy, DCSR);
phy_writel(phy, dcsr, DCSR);
if ((dcsr & PXA_DCSR_BUSERR) && (phy->vchan))
- dev_warn(&phy->vchan->vc.chan.dev->device,
- "%s(chan=%p): PXA_DCSR_BUSERR\n",
- __func__, &phy->vchan);

return dcsr & ~PXA_DCSR_RUN;
}
btw: It'd be nice if coccinelle could use multiple nested "\("
