    Subject[PATCH] Firmware class name collision

    following patch fixes the i2c name collision with i2c-dev.

    This issue has been experienced with em28xx and saa7133 based devices.
    I discussed that problem with Jean Delvare a while ago and he proposed
    to add a prefix to the class name.
