I have changed this to a static buffer.  Since this is only in
#ifdef CONFIG_CAN_DEBUG_CORE, it shouldn't hurt.

The line isn't printed atomically, i.e. it could happen that something
is printed between the fmt+args and the hexdump, i.e inbetween the
line.

Here, the consecutive lines aren't printed atomically.

I think sprintf() to a buffer first and the do one printk() is
better.  But I will use hex_dump_to_buffer().
