SubjectRe: 2.4.13-ac5 && vtun not working

Here is the patch for TUN/TAP to remove that suboptimality :).
So we won't call dev_alloc_name if name is not a template.

This won't work. The whole purpose of calling dev_alloc_name
is to twofold:

1) Make sure the name string is unique

2) Copy that name into dev->name if it is unique

I'm going to change dev_alloc_name() to allow non-'%' names
instead, that is a better fix.

Franks a lot,
