ptp: drop redundant kasprintf() to create worker name
Building with -Wformat-nonliteral, gcc complains drivers/ptp/ptp_clock.c: In function ‘ptp_clock_register’: drivers/ptp/ptp_clock.c:239:26: warning: format not a string literal and no format arguments [-Wformat-nonliteral] worker_name : info->name); kthread_create_worker takes fmt+varargs to set the name of the worker, and that happens with a vsnprintf() to a stack buffer (that is then copied into task_comm). So there's no reason not to just pass "ptp%d", ptp->index to kthread_create_worker() and avoid the intermediate worker_name variable.
