Of course not - such a message is really meaningless.

printk(XENLOG_G_WARNING "Cannot identity map %d:%lx, already mapped to %lx\n",
       d->domain_id, gfn, mfn_x(mfn));

would be a message conveying all information necessary to
gain initial understanding of what the issue is.

Referring to existing bad examples is never going to help.

We just have none, and for the specific case of using or not using
"goto" it wouldn't help you anyway.

Where is the problem with just writing

int set_identity_p2m_entry(struct domain *d, unsigned long gfn)
    p2m_type_t p2mt;
    p2m_access_t a;
    mfn_t mfn;
    struct p2m_domain *p2m = p2m_get_hostp2m(d);
    int ret;

    gfn_lock(p2m, gfn, 0);

    mfn = p2m->get_entry(p2m, gfn, &p2mt, &a, 0, NULL);
    if ( !mfn_valid(mfn) )
        ret = p2m_set_entry(p2m, gfn, _mfn(gfn), PAGE_ORDER_4K, p2m_mmio_direct,
    else if ( mfn_x(mfn) == gfn )
       ret = 0;
               "Cannot identity map %d:%lx, already mapped to %lx\n",
               d->domain_id, gfn, mfn_x(mfn));
        ret = -EBUSY;

    gfn_unlock(p2m, gfn, 0);

    return ret;

? Of course it may still be necessary to also inspect the obtained p2mt
and a.
