msg is always a const char array so no evaluation is done.
It's just a pointer.

In fact, this could either become a static inline or a
simple function call to reduce object size even further.

For instance:

$ size vmlinux.o.nl_func.*
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
19974564	3457991	 741312	24173867	170dd2b	vmlinux.o.nl_func.new
19992097	3457967	 741312	24191376	1712190	vmlinux.o.nl_func.old
