Subject[PATCH v4] kunit: fix failure to build without printk
Previously KUnit assumed that printk would always be present, which is
not a valid assumption to make. Fix that by removing call to
vprintk_emit, and calling printk directly.

This fixes a build error[1] reported by Randy.

For context this change comes after much discussion. My first stab[2] at
this was just to make the KUnit logging code compile out; however, it
was agreed that if we were going to use vprintk_emit, then vprintk_emit
should provide a no-op stub, which lead to my second attempt[3]. In
response to me trying to stub out vprintk_emit, Sergey Senozhatsky
suggested a way for me to remove our usage of vprintk_emit, which led to
my third attempt at solving this[4].

In my third version of this patch[4], I completely removed vprintk_emit,
as suggested by Sergey; however, there was a bit of debate over whether
Sergey's solution was the best. The debate arose due to Sergey's version
resulting in a checkpatch warning, which resulted in a debate over
correct printk usage. Joe Perches offered an alternative fix which was
somewhat less far reaching than what Sergey had suggested and
importantly relied on continuing to use %pV. Much of the debated
centered around whether %pV should be widely used, and whether Sergey's
version would result in object size bloat. Ultimately, we decided to go
with Sergey's version.

Sorry for the long commit message, but given the long discussion (and
some of the confusion that occurred in the discussion), it seemed
appropriate to summarize the discussion around this patch up to this
point (especially since one of the proposed patches was under a separate
patch subject).

Changes Since v3:

Renamed kunit_print_level to kunit_printk, and changed the KERN_LEVEL
macro parameter (in kunit_printk) to lvl, as suggested by Joe.
