[INET]: Fix netdev renaming and inet address labels

[ Upstream commit: 44344b2a85f03326c7047a8c861b0c625c674839 ]

When re-naming an interface, the previous secondary address
labels get lost e.g.

$> brctl addbr foo
$> ip addr add 192.168.0.1 dev foo
$> ip addr add 192.168.0.2 dev foo label foo:00
$> ip addr show dev foo | grep inet
inet 192.168.0.1/32 scope global foo
inet 192.168.0.2/32 scope global foo:00
$> ip link set foo name bar
$> ip addr show dev bar | grep inet
inet 192.168.0.1/32 scope global bar
inet 192.168.0.2/32 scope global bar:2

Turns out to be a simple thinko in inetdev_changename() - clearly we
want to look at the address label, rather than the device name, for
a suffix to retain.
