Maybe you are confusing it with DRM_DEV_INFO? It takes the dev pointer,
and is indeed told to be deprecated in favour of drm_info() in the
comments (see line 394).

DRM_INFO is a separate macro for printing stuff, and does not take the
dev pointer. They seem to be early wrappers for printk, I guess when
pr_info did not exist. And all they do different from pr_info is to add
DRM_NAME (which seems to be just "drm") in front of the string.
