First off, this change is wrong: you've just changed the error message
to contain a huge amount of white space between the words Replay and
Timer.

Secondly, please don't split printk strings onto multiple lines, because
it makes them impossible to grep for.

These same comments apply to the other printk hunks in this patch.

This new comment is much less readable than before due to the linebreak,
IMO.  Since the private adapter stuff is addressed by the subsequent
comment (bit rot?), we can simply remove that part of the sentence and
it will be shorter:

  Setup the fundamental net_device structure elements.

This comment didn't exceed 80 columns to begin with.
