Perhaps you were not copied on the whole series.

As I understand it, Sakair Ailus is proposing to
obsolete the current vsprintf "%p[Ff]" extension
and replace the usage with a new "%pfw" extension
which would emit the name of a pointer to "struct fwnode {}".

https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20190910084707.18380-10-sakari.ailus@linux.intel.com/

If reusing "%pf<foo>" is a problem, then instead
it might be reasonable to have a new "%pn<foo>" for
that use instead.

btw:

Is there kernel version information available in
trace output files?

If so, it might be reasonable to change the tooling
there instead.
