hmm you lost me there a bit; Do you want me to duplicate this code for all the 
ndev_err/ndev_info functions instead so that ndev_err doesn't direct back to 
ndev_printk?

the driver can, since these bits are set in alloc_netdev, nothing prevents a 
driver from setting the mask immediately afterwards. Putting in a sane default 
seems a good idea and good practice.

Maybe I went a bit far by going all out on the DEBUG flags tho... perhaps those 
can be removed or only NETIF_MSG_RX_ERR and NETIF_MSG_TX_ERR set with DEBUG.
