[PATCH 4/7] bug: Lift "cut here" out of __warn()

From: Kees Cook
Date: Mon Aug 19 2019 - 19:41:39 EST

In preparation for cleaning up "cut here", move the "cut here" logic
up out of __warn() and into callers that pass non-NULL args. For anyone
looking closely, there are two callers that pass NULL args: one already
explicitly prints "cut here". The remaining case is covered by how a
WARN is built, which will be cleaned up in the next patch.
