Philip Craig made a suggestion:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-wireless&m=120338413108120&w=2

to use this:

If not debugging, guard #define wrapper_printks with if (0).
The gcc optimizer removes the printk but gcc still does
printf argument verification.

There are many other debug printk wrappers

	#ifdef DEBUG
	#define printk_wrapper 
	#else
	#define printk_wrapper printk
	#endif

that should be converted as well.
