As Andy pointed out, never do this for a C string, it's not doing what
you think it is :)

Worse case, do this like the following:
		pr_err("speakup: Invalid ser param."
			"Must be between 0 and 191 inclusive.\n");

Also note, you are using spaces here in the patch, always run
checkpatch.pl on your patches, so you don't get a grumpy maintainer
telling you to run checkpatch.pl on your patches :)

Please fix up and resend the series.
