I think you don't expect me to change the patch, but to make this
explicit: My patch doesn't make this problem worse, so this would be an
orthogonal change and doesn't affect this one.

Spaces don't seem to be allowed in netdev names:

uwe@taurus:~$ sudo ip link set wlp3s0 name 'la la'
Error: argument "la la" is wrong: "name" not a valid ifname

(Didn't check if only ip forbids that, of if that is a kernel policy.) I
could rename my device to "lala[]" though.

Best regards
Uwe
