Yes, but not using printf.  The function to use is asm_output_insn().
grep for it in gcc/config/*./*.md to see how it is used in define_insn

If you have only use output_asm_insn in your pattern, then return a
null string.  Again, you'll see this in the .md files.

You may want to look at pushing the complication into the functions
that PRINT_OPERAND and PRINT_OPERAND_ADDRESS call instead of the
patterns since it localizes the complexity of the operands into one
place, as well lets you use them in multiple patterns.
