The original pr_notice was arguably a debugging aid to verify that the
build-time sorting has actually happened. I flipped it because it wasn't
telling us anything interesting and we know that the sorting works -
we've been staring at that message for a couple of kernel releases
already :-)

One possible reason for having it flipped is to encourage runtime
sorting arches to convert to build time sorting.

But silencing this completely is also ok with me - I don't care all that
