I suggested that some time ago with limited success, see
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200129115516.zsvxu56e6h7gheiw@pathway.suse.cz/
.

I don't agree. Error messages are supposed to be helpful and I prefer
some casting between error pointer and error int over emitting bare
numbers to the kernel log. (And additionally the uglyness might help to
convince the vsprintf guys that %de might be a good idea after all :-)

Best regards
Uwe
