This is an unused function that has several issues:

(1) it uses ddi_get_item(9f) to rate limit instead of gethrtime(9f) or ddi_get_lbolt(9f)

(2) it calls cmn_err/fprintf with a user supplied buffer which could contain format escape sequences causing invalid pointer dereferences leading to kernel panics
