Audit of current printk() calls
Changed debug levels to 0,1,2,3 as follows:
 0 No debug
 1 load/probe/unload/suspend/resume stuff
 2 rx/tx errors
 3 rx/tx packets and every interrupt are logged (very verbose)
Debug levels are incremental
Removed double printing of version string in module_init and in sis900_probe
Made the sis900_debug parameter modifiable at runtime

Debug levels are standardized, please follow the standard.

All messages are bitmapped. See NETIF_MSG_* and netif_msg_* in include/linux/netdevice.h.

Given the standard 'debug' module parameter, which takes a value from 0-N (where N==10 or so), the driver uses netif_msg_init() to construct the bitmap of messages to be enabled.
