I fail to follow you - yes, dev_alloc_name calls sprintf on it, but
sprintf works fine on strings without "%d", and dev_alloc_name also works
fine (despite a little suboptimal).

You're right, it should allow the "string has no '%' at all" case
as well. Please, someone send me a patch which does this.

Franks a lot,
