BTW, I see a bunch of remaining printks when I do 'git grep printk
drivers/mtd/nand', basically all those that don't have a
KERN_<LOGLEVEL> in it. I know your commit log explicitly says that only
printks embedding a log level are converted to pr_xxx(), but it's
probably worth patching those printks as well (choosing the appropriate
log level between info, err and warn and use pr_xxx() helpers).
This should be done in a separate patch of course.
