'text' is a constant string then. Supporting a format string will make
this much more complicated. Yet, printing out the wrong timeout is
useful, I think.

What about:

dev_str = wdd->parent ? dev_name(wdd->parent) : wdd->info->identity;
pr_<errlvl>("%s: <errstr>\n", dev_str, ...);

?

This can be easily copied for watchdog_register_device, not much
overhead there.
