It's not really for the benefit of the driver, it's for the benefit of
the kernel as a whole - the individually hand crafted error messages all
take up space in the kernel so if we just remove them and rely on the
OOM messages being loud we will in aggregate save some not completely
trivial amount of space in the kernel image. Not a *massive* amount but
somewhat helpful.
