I suggest adding --strict to your checkpatch runs to
report a few more style usage elements.

I think this would be nicer aligning the arguments
to the open parenthesis like:

		dev_info(&us->pusb_dev->dev, "Insert     = %x\n",

but using

		us_info(us, "Insert     = %x\n", us->SM_Status.Insert);

would be nicer still and fit 80 cols, etc...

Another option would be to use a macro like:

#define us_show_status(us, field)				\
	us_info(us, "%-11s= %x\n", #field, us->SM_Status.field)

And these become

	us_show_status(us, "Insert");
	us_show_status(us, "Ready");
	us_show_status(us, "WtP");


It depends on how many of these actually exist whether
or not a macro is appropriate.
