Ahh yes, good spot thanks!

Absolutely! good point. Looks like I was trying to make things fit for
the PEP8 tool. Not sure why I didn't pull just the arg to the next line.
Fixed up locally for the next spin.
Also I think as the rest of the kernel python code is using .format() it
probably makes sense to swap that too to match.
Thanks for the eyes.
