Thanks for your comments.

The intention is to print relatively complete call path for convenience of
debugging in case of error. With this, we can know the exact name of
the concrete failed function.
Besides, currently such information is printed with level KERN_ERR,
and can be tuned through console_loglevel to avoid the possible impact
to end user.

Do you think it make sense?

Thanks and Regards,
Li Fei
