virtio: console: Ignore port name update request if name already set
We don't allow port name changes dynamically for a port. So any requests by the host to change the name are ignored. Before this patch, if the hypervisor sent a port name while we had one set already, we would leak memory equivalent to the size of the old name. This scenario wasn't expected so far, but with the suspend-resume support, we'll send the VIRTIO_CONSOLE_PORT_READY message after restore, which can get us into this situation.
