I don't know.

I think you're on the right track.

from vt8237r.h:

#if DEBUG_SMBUS == 1
#define PRINT_DEBUG(x)		print_debug(x)
#define PRINT_DEBUG_HEX16(x)	print_debug_hex16(x)
#define PRINT_DEBUG(x)
#define PRINT_DEBUG_HEX16(x)

I'm guessing that DEBUG_SMBUS is not 1.  Change it to #if 1 and recompile.
