Subject: printk and kdb - dev_<level> not trapped/forwarded

dev_<level> output does not use printk() but directly
calls vprintk_emit().

kdb only traps direct printk() calls.

So, kdb hasn't emitted any dev_<level> or netdev_<level>
output since structured logging and vprintk_emit() was
introduced a couple of years ago.

It seems no one has cared.

Maybe the kdb handling should be removed?
