Yes.

Perhaps something like the below (or an equivalent generic wrapper)

#define pr_info(fmt, ...) \
do { \
	if (CONFIG_STATIC_CONSOLE_LEVEL >= LOGLEVEL_INFO) \
		printk(KERN_INFO pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__); \
	else \
		no_printk(KERN_INFO pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__); \
} while (0)

for each pr_<level>, dev_<level> and netdev_<level>
