Thanks for your feedbacks. I agree %pK does not make much sense in the
context it is used. I will modify this patch to use %p instead.

As both handle_missaligned_access() and handle_object_size_mismatch()
use two pr_err() calls to display their error messages, it seems the
split has been made on purpose (maybe to avoid logging long lines).
I won't merge the calls in my patch as this appears to be more an
ergonomic subject for people really using this code.
