[PATCH] mm: Change normal message to use pr_debug

From: Toshi Kani
Date: Tue May 21 2013 - 17:34:12 EST

During early boot-up, iomem_resource is set up from the boot
descriptor table, such as EFI Memory Table and e820. Later,
acpi_memory_device_add() calls add_memory() for each ACPI
memory device object as it enumerates ACPI namespace. This
add_memory() call is expected to fail in register_memory_resource()
at boot since iomem_resource has been set up from EFI/e820.
As a result, add_memory() returns -EEXIST, which
acpi_memory_device_add() handles as the normal case.

This scheme works fine, but the following error message is
logged for every ACPI memory device object during boot-up.

"System RAM resource %pR cannot be added\n"

This patch changes register_memory_resource() to use pr_debug()
for the message as it shows up under the normal case.
