spi: fixed odd static string conventions in core code
This patch removes convention of passing a static string as a parameter to another static string. The convention is intended to reduce text usage by sharing the common bits of the string, but the implementation is inherently fragile (a change to one format string but not the other will nullify any possible advantage), it isn't necessarily a net win depending on what this compiler does, and it it reduces code readability.
