net: call dev_alloc_name from register_netdevice
Force dev_alloc_name() to be called from register_netdevice() by dev_get_valid_name(). That allows to remove multiple explicit dev_alloc_name() calls. The possibility to call dev_alloc_name in advance remains. This also fixes veth creation regresion caused by 84c49d8c3e4abefb0a41a77b25aa37ebe8d6b743 Signed-off-by: Jiri Pirko <jpirko@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
