Gah, of course you're right, copy/paste dumbness.

Trivial space reduction on x86/32.
It's just a few bytes.  It may not be
a savings at all for x86/64.

I'd actually prefer to remove all the
extra "INFO/ERR/WARNING" bits from the
messages as it's a simple duplication of
the KERN_<LEVEL> and I think not useful.

I'll resubmit tomorrow.
