What's the point this define when you're using it only once, a few
lines below?

You're mixing device and driver here. DRV_DESC describes the driver,
while this dev_info() refers to a specific device. So I don't see more
confusion than benefit with this change. If you want to expose the
driver version, you'd rather user MODULE_VERSION().
