I wonder if you wrote this before seeing my other patchset.

For others as the background, it adds %pfw to print fwnode node names.
Assuming this would be merged, %pfw could be in use relatively soon. With
the current patchset, %pf prints nothing just as %pO ("F" missing).

What I think could be done is to warn of plain %pf (without following "w")
in, and %pf that is not followed by "w" in the kernel.
Although we didn't have such checks to begin with. The case is still a
little bit different as %pf used to be a valid conversion specifier whereas
%pO likely has never existed.

So, how about adding such checks in the other set? I can retain %p[fF] check
here, too, if you like.

Kind regards,

Sakari Ailus
