By default, no messages are printed when mounting a CIFS filesystem.
This information is valuable when troubleshooting and/or forensic
analyzing a system and finding out if was a CIFS endpoint mount
attempted.
Other filesystems such as XFS, EXT* does issue a printk() when mounting
their filesystems.

Sample output:

[root@ll-rhel7 ~]# mount -o user=administrator //172.25.250.18/c$ /mnt
(non-existent system)

[root@ll-rhel7 ~]# mount -o user=administrator //172.25.250.19/c$ /mnt
(Valid system)

Kernel message log:

[  450.464543] CIFS VFS: Attempting to mount //172.25.250.18/c$
[  456.478186] CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation.
[  456.478381] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113
[  467.688866] CIFS VFS: Attempting to mount //172.25.250.19/c$

Let's change the next FYI line to not contain devname thus avoiding
duplicate logging when FYI is enabled.

Other than the comment above I agree with the change.
