In drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ih.c,
amdgpu_ih_process calls DRM_DEBUG which calls drm_dbg and
finally calls printk.
As amdgpu_ih_process is called from an interrupt handler,
and interrupt handler should be short as possible.

As printk may lead to bogging down the system or can even
create a live lock. printk should not be used in IRQ context.
Instead, trace_printk is recommended in IRQ context.

Changes in v2:
  - Only make the interrupt uses the trace_printk to avoid
    all 4000+ drm_dbg/DRM_DEBUG uses emitting a trace_printk.

I made a suggestion.  I did not review this.

Please do not add signatures like this if
not specifically given by someone.

Right above here is a check for drm_debug, which defaults to off, so in
production this all has 0 impact. But changing all the debug output from
dmesg to tracing is sure to break everyone's CI and test setups.

I'm all for cleaning up the drm logging stuff (it's a real mess), but it's
a very delicate house of cards and with thousands of users, not easy to
change. Unfortunately I don't really have a solid recommendation for what
the ideal drm logging should look like. Plus we already have a pile of
competing approaches ...
