I cannot really answer this question as I ain't got much of a clue
around the tracing APIs. But in this case I think we should indeed add
this via `trace_printf_key()` so that we remain consistent with all the
other wrappers in the debug store. I'd argue that either all functions
here should use trace or trace2, but not a mixture.
