Oh, right.
So we sort of want people to use pr_err()/pr_info()/pr_"level"()
because, otherwise, when people use plain printk(), they tend to
forget to add KERN_LEVEL.

In kunit case everything looks fine. KERN_LEVEL is there so I'm
fine with the patch.

You still can switch to pr_info()/pr_err()/pr_etc, just to make
checkpatch happier, but that's up to you.

No, not really. pr_level() stands for pr_"debug"()/pr_"info"()/etc.

E.g.

#define pr_emerg(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_EMERG pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_alert(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_ALERT pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_crit(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_CRIT pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_err(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_ERR pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_warning(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_WARNING pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_warn pr_warning
#define pr_notice(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_NOTICE pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
#define pr_info(fmt, ...) \
printk(KERN_INFO pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__)
