I generally like this approach, but in brcmsmac we've been switching to 
wiphy_err() and related instead.  Any strong argument for one over the

I'd propose moving __func__ into the macro definition itself, which 
would help ensure consistency (and shorten all the debug lines a bit).

Also, perhaps rename to "brcm_dbg()", "bcm_dbg()" or something like that 
and move it into include/bcmutils.h, so brcmsmac can use it as well.
