Hm, not sure that's what we want. We should probably fail when the
allocation fails.

How about letting ->get_name() return an error pointer or NULL in case
of error. With the other I made suggestion in my review of patch 1
(calling ->get_name() at probe time) you could refuse to probe the
device when ->get_name() fails.
