ratelimit: Make suppressed output messages more useful
Today I got: [39648.224782] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::TX [40676.545099] __ratelimit: 246 callbacks suppressed [40676.545103] abcdef[23675]: segfault at 0 ... as you can see the ratelimit message contains a function prefix. Since this is always __ratelimit, this wont help much. This patch changes __ratelimit and printk_ratelimit to print the function name that calls ratelimit. This will pinpoint the responsible function, as long as not several different places call ratelimit with the same ratelimit state at the same time. In that case we catch only one random function that calls ratelimit after the wait period.
