Re: [PATCH] wcn36xx: Fix logging macro with unnecessary semicolon

Hi Joe,

I personally like the idea of making some kind of framework on top of
printing because all ath drivers are using the same printing approach
and combining all that code in one place will reduce amount of code in
each particular driver. As a true engineer i like when it's less code
= less work to do = less bugs:)

Suggestion is to send a patch with semicolon fix only and have a
second round of convincing ath guys to change printing code. How does
that sound?
