I have added that message now:

dev_info(parent, "Led %s renamed to %s due to name collision",
led_cdev->name, dev_name(led_cdev->dev));

We need to keep a pointer to the generated string, to release it later
with kfree.
Also I rather allocate new memory only if there is a name collision.

I am now iterating with

while (class_find_device(leds_class, NULL, name, match_name));
