Hi Joe,

Yeah, roughly the same thing can be achieved with +flmp instead
of just +p with PRETTYDEBUG, but PRETTYDEBUG formatting actually
predates those flags and some of us still use bash scripts from
back then.  We also have a few guides and blog entries with just
+p, but that's not a big deal.

I'd be fine with removing CONFIG_CEPH_LIB_PRETTYDEBUG since it's
disabled by default and in all major distributions, but I'm not a
fan of a wide-sweeping dout -> pr_debug change.  We do extensive
backporting to older kernels and these kind of changes are rather
annoying.  dout is shorter to type too ;)

I know that in some cases the function names are outdated or
duplicated, but I prefer fixing them gradually, along with actual
code changes in the area (i.e. similar to whitespace).

Thanks,

                Ilya
