It also allows you to modify pr_fmt at the top of the file or
elsewhere and have it influence the output, as just one example
of how it's better.

As a maintainer you can only take one of two positions:

1) Accept all properly written patches that convert code over to use
   the new and recommended way of doing things, such as pr_info() et

2) Advocate on linux-kernel to remove these new interfaces or improve
   them if you don't find them suitable, and then once suitable go
   back to #1.

Just keeping things the way they are because you simply feel like it
is really not acceptable Ted.
