Hello Kenji-san,

You are obviously correct about my prior bad patch that simply
removed the check in pci_hp_register() for duplicate names.

I also talked with Willy, and he thought that the proper way to
fix all these issues was not in the individual drivers, but in
the PCI core, which I agree with.

Here is a patch series that attempts to implement Willy's
suggestion.

Patches 1--6 convert the callers of pci_hp_register/pci_create_slot
from a static char name[] to a dynamically kmalloc'ed char *name.

There are also cleanups in the individual drivers to remove the
_slot_with_bus parameters.

Patch 7/7 implements the collision rename logic. It's not the
prettiest thing in the world, so your comments are welcome. :)

It's getting late here and I haven't had time to really test it,
other than a quick compile test, but I wanted to try and send it
so that you could take a look and possibly try it. ;)

These patches apply on top of Linus's latest tree.

Thanks!
