Subject[PATCH net-next] net:set valid name before calling ndo_init()
Date
In commit 1c5cae815d19 (net: call dev_alloc_name from register_netdevice),
a bug of bonding was invloved, see example 1 and 2.

In register_netdevice(), the name of net_device is not valid until
dev_get_valid_name() is called. But dev->netdev_ops->ndo_init(that is
bond_init) is called before dev_get_valid_name(),
and it uses the invalid name of net_device.

I think register_netdevice() should make sure that the name of net_device is
valid before calling ndo_init().

example 1:
modprobe bonding
ls /proc/net/bonding/bond%d

ps -eLf
root 3398 2 3398 0 1 21:34 ? 00:00:00 [bond%d]

example 2:
modprobe bonding max_bonds=3
