I personally believe it's a good change.

For a literal string without any formatting using the seq_printf() is
much more involved for no reason, but aside of this small performance
improvement, it also has some value in demonstrating the correct usage
patterns - people spent more time reading kernel code and looking at how
to do things and use things to base their work on, so setting some
example is not a bad idea.

Albeit, it's a matter of point of view too, I suppose.

Yes, there is a fine line with these.

No worries! Thank you for giving it some thought! I appreciate it. :)
