Or maybe combine these in the ubi_<level> calls passing
NULL when there is no struct ubi_device *

void ubi_err(const struct ubi_device *ubi, fmt. ...)
	struct va_format vaf;
	va_list args;

	va_start(args, fmt);

	vaf.fmt = fmt; = &args;

	if (ubi && ubi->gd)
		dev_err(disk_to_dev(dev->gd), "UBI-%d error: %pF %pV",
			ubi->ubi_num, __builtin_return_address(0), &vaf);
	else if (ubi)
		printk(KERN_ERR "UBI-%d error: %pf: %pV",
		       ubi->ubi_num, __builtin_return_address(0), &vaf);
		printk(KERN_ERR "UBI: error: %pf: %pV",
		       __builtin_return_address(0), &vaf);
