It's interesting to compare it to the modern version [1].

In a way, it really isn't much more complicated now. It's changed to take a format string, but beyond that, once you rip out the platform-specific ifdefs, the SMP/lock code, and the automatic reboot code, you're still left with a pretty simple function that does basically the same thing.
