Getting rid of the BKL had real, user-visible benefits.  Invoking a
war on printk has no real-world benefits.

It's about the same utility as fixing "colour" to be "color" because
people think standardized spelling is somehow critically important.
Guess what?  The world will keep spinning and users will not notice
the difference if we use printk vs. pr_info
