Subject[PATCH 037/196] kobject: fix up kobject_set_name to use kvasprintf
Date
Kay pointed out that kobject_set_name was being very stupid, doing two
allocations for every call, when it should just be using the kernel
function kvasprintf() instead.

This change adds the internal kobject_set_name_vargs() function, which
other follow-on patches will be using.
