I'll remove this and other similar dev_dbg() calls. This was an oversight on my part.

I have other instances that a kprobe can't easily replace, such as printing structure contents, that are useful for tracing the usage of the driver. It looks like other misc drivers use dev_dbg() similarly -- do you consider this an acceptable use of a debug print?

Thanks,
Gage
