Indeed, I also think that BT_DBG() is a poor macro and that it should
be fixed tree-wide. I might even do it myself, in a separate patch.

The reason for DBG being in the current patch is to match other *_DBG()
log functions that make more sense, such as NS_DBG().

As for the btusb.c example case, this patch allows us to fix the
"quoted string split across lines" warning caused by the BT_INFO()
macro. The fix will be to not to split the quoted string, which will
be allowed when BT_INFO() is recognized as a log function.
