small_print vs system_printf

I've just noticed that in various places in the DLL, small_print is
called directly.  Most of these look (to me) like they should be using
system_printf; for example, in (reformatted slightly):

  if (wincap.has_security ()
       && cygserver_running==CYGSERVER_OK
       && (SetKernelObjectSecurity (hMainProc,
            get_null_sd ()) == FALSE))
    small_printf ("Can't set process security, %E");

Would a patch to change (all of?) these uses to system_printf be
