The DRM_ print macros in capital letters are deprecated AFAIK. In cases
where a dev pointer is available, using drm_info() et al. is preferred
over pr_info().

In the context of your patch, you should use drm_info() in
drm_client_target_cloned(), as is gets a dev pointer as its first
argument. In most the other cases from your patch, you can get the dev
pointer from connector->dev.

The final case, drm_legacy_pci_exit(), there's no dev pointer, so you
can use pr_info() there. I'd remove '[drm]' from the string. We don't
use this much elsewhere.

Best regards
