Thanks for your reply. I used printk() because at least in this file, 
printk() is used.

Should I change printk() to pr_err() and revise this patch, or should 
all printk() in this file be changed? I hope you can give me some 
specific instructions. Actually I don't know what to do when getting 
this reply...

Thanks
