It's not my level changelog prolixity, it's you do changes irrelevant to
your changelog and further you do not explain, why you change the code.
So (a) review process is hard and (b) nobody (mainly distro kernel
packagers) knows whether to backport some of the change to stable or not.

Look at that piece again:
Subject [PATCH 03/24] drivers/block/floppy.c: Use pr_<level>
Date Thu, 21 Jan 2010 20:52:33 -0800

Convert bare printk to pr_info and pr_cont
Convert printk(KERN_ERR to pr_err
if (UDP->flags & FD_DEBUG) {
- DPRINT("reschedule timeout ");
- printk(message, marg);
- printk("\n");
+ DPRINT("reschedule timeout %s %d\n", message, marg);

Does it look like a "Use pr_<level>" change? No and hence my confusion
by the hunk.
