My only issues is with the "__ret" name.

It's not really unique enough. If something else uses __ret and does

  printk_ratelimit("some fmt string %d\n", __ret);

This will not print the right value.

printk_ratelimit can be used almost anywhere thus using a really unique
value may be worth while here.

What about:

  int ______r

?
