I agree this is ugly. But do you mean we could use
("../../../%pd3/%s", dbgfs_dir, "iwlmvm")? Or how did we have the name?

Also, this would solve the sprintf() problem, but still wouldn't solve
the real issue, which is not check for ERR in dbgfs_dir.

Yeah, we can do that. So this patch doesn't need to be sent for
v5.1-rc* and v5.0, right? At least I don't see how it would fix the
issue. What we need is a new patch with the IS_ERR check.
