SubjectLinux 4.14-rc6 bisected regression tun devices not working anymore in openvpn

While testing a linux 4.14-rc6 kernel i noticed OpenVPN didn't function anymore.
My openvpn config uses tun devices and is pretty standard.
The openvpn version is current Debian stable: openvpn 2.4.0-6+deb9u2

From the openvpn logging:
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=175829 TUN/TAP device opened
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=183027 Note: Cannot set tx queue length on : No such device (errno=19)
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=183055 do_ifconfig, tt->did_ifconfig_ipv6_setup=0
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=183071 /sbin/ip link set dev up mtu 1500
Cannot find device ""
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=200445 Linux ip link set failed: external program exited with error status: 1
Sat Oct 28 16:03:34 2017 us=200482 Exiting due to fatal error
Sat Oct 28 16:38:17 2017 us=923381 TCP/UDP: Closing socket
Sat Oct 28 16:38:17 2017 us=925986 Closing TUN/TAP interface

The offending commit is:
"tun: call dev_get_valid_name() before register_netdevice()"

Reverting this commit fixes the issue for me, it's unfortunate that the commit it self seems to fix an other issue.
