There are also netdev_err() etc. for logging with a net device as
context.

You can use the netif_err(), netif_dbg() etc. functions and implement
the ethtool {get,set}_msglevel operations to allow turning on and off
broad classes of log messages.

Finally, if CONFIG_DYNAMIC_DEBUG is enabled then debug logging messages
can be turned on and off at run-time (individually or by function, file
or module).

Ben.
