IMO: All of these should be changed

I suggest using the rather more common vchiq_err, vchiq_warn, vchiq_info
and if necessary vchiq_trace.  Also the cat >= test is unnecessary and
this should just use the more common standard logging facilities.

vchiq_loud_error is IMO unnecessary.

Also several of the uses of these macros already have '\n' terminations
so that just adds unnecessary blank lines in the logging.
