This patch series address feedback for a previous patch series sent by
me "docs: block: null_blk: enhance document style"[1].

First patch removes a restriction that prevents null_blk to load with
(nr_devices == 0). This restriction breaks applications, so it's a bug. I
have tested it running the kernel with `null_blk.nr_devices=0`.

In the previous series I have changed the type of var nr_devices, but I
forgot to change the type at module_param(). The second patch fix that.

The third patch uses a cleaver approach to make log messages consistent
using pr_fmt and the last one add a note on how to do that at the
coding style documentation.


Changes since v1:
 - Add "Fixes" tag at [2/4]
 - No more headers reordering at [3/4]
 - Use #undef pr_fmt and KBUILD_MODNAME at [3/4] and [4/4]
 - Replace "printk.h" for "kernel.h" at [4/4]

 More details are provided at each patch changelog
