I'd prefer something like that as well, and it is
a long-term goal I have, but not yet, no.

There are many files that use pr_<level> without pr_fmt.

Those need to be sorted out first, perhaps by adding a new
line to each of those files to "#define pr_fmt(fmt) fmt"

KBUILD_MODNAME is always #defined by the make system.

$ grep -rP --include=*.[ch] -lw "pr_(info|warn|warning|notice|debug|dbg|vdbg|crit|alert|err|emerg|cont)" * | \
	while read file ; do \
		grep -lwq pr_fmt $file ; \
		echo "$?:$file"; \
	done | \
 cut -f1 -d":" | sort | uniq -c 
    335 0
   1532 1

Exit status 0 means a match for pr_fmt.

So there are ~1900 files that use pr_<level>
in the kernel tree, only 335 have pr_fmt.

This search does have some false negatives because
some files use an #include that does a #define pr_fmt.

Anyway, I'd like to sort it out eventually.
For now, I just add the #define pr_fmt, with
a long term goal of removing them all and using
a different mechanism to remove the duplicated
prefix string altogether from the formats and
save some text.
