I didn't bother to remove "pf/pF" because I didn't want to count on:
a) everyone running
b) everyone testing all printk-s they added

I guess pf/pF still can sneak in.

But I don't have a really strong opinion on this. If general
consensus is that we shall remove deprecated specifiers, then
I'm fine.

After running this script I still have a bunch of leftovers:

// these two are probably not really relevant, but still - %pF/%pf
tools/lib/traceevent/event-parse.c: if (asprintf(&format, "%%pf: (NO FORMAT FOUND at %llx)\n", addr) < 0)
tools/lib/traceevent/event-parse.c: if (asprintf(&format, "%s: %s", "%pf", printk->printk) < 0)

arch/um/kernel/sysrq.c: pr_info(" [<%08lx>] %s%pF\n", address, reliable ? "" : "? ",
arch/x86/xen/multicalls.c: printk(KERN_DEBUG " call %2d/%d: op=%lu arg=[%lx] result=%ld\t%pF\n",
kernel/async.c: pr_debug("calling %lli_%pF @ %i\n",
kernel/async.c: pr_debug("initcall %lli_%pF returned 0 after %lld usecs\n",
