Mainly is to improve readability of the function.

The conditions to display the message were coupled together in one
single `if` statement.

Besides that, patch 5/7 adds a call to print_vma_addr(), which is not
aware of any rate limit - it simply calls printk().

So splitting out the rate limit check outside show_signal_msg() makes it
easier to the caller decide if it wants to respect a printk rate limit
or not.

Cheers
Murilo
