From: Miles Chen <miles.chen at mediatek.com>

This RFC patch is sent to discuss the printing address with %p issue.

Since commit ad67b74d2469d9b8 ("printk: hash addresses printed with %p"),
%p gives obfuscated addresses now. When CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG=y, it is still
useful to get real virtual addresses.

Possible approaches are:
1. stop printing kernel addresses
2. print with %pK,
3. print with %px.
4. do nothing

This patch takes %px approach and shows the output here.
(%px will causes checkpatch warnings, let us ignore the warning here to
have the discussion). Also, use DUMP_PREFIX_OFFSET instead of
DUMP_PREFIX_ADDRESS.
