I don't think it is _needed_ at this stage, more like "a good to have";
it's a debug output, which we already have duplicating elsewhere anyway
(like ptrace-related debug printing). And I have to check, but in some
cases sprintxval_ex is enough (and multiple-xlat cases can be worked around
to some extent).
