We converted the entire tree over the print_mac(), and since
the MAC_FMT stuff was therefore no longer used we could
remove it.

Some references slipped back in somehow, and thus MAC_FMT
did too.

There is no reason to keep around a global interface for
_one_ user when that user can use the recommended interface
just as equally as the rest of the tree which we converted.

This is a pr_debug() statement we're talking about here.
