The patch still cleanly applies to linux-next as wells as Linus's tree.
Some %pf bits have appeared and fixed since (include/trace/events/timer.h);
the fix is in linux-next so once that and this patch are merged, there are
no remaining %pf (or %pF) users left.
I have pushed the patch into printk.git, branch for-5.2-pf-removal.
It is v2 without the include/trace/events/timer.h stuff.
