Well, it's not matter of what I like for my code, but matter
of what information a random KASSERT() would print on me
when I happen to trigger it. It's my understanding there is going
to be single KASSERT() macro (with two args), and we'll migrate
the code to use it.

If the newly added descriptive texts would be really descriptive,
there is really probably little point in repeating the condition -
one can always look into sources for that, after all.
