Subject[PATCH] driver core: Fix possible use after free on name
Date
From: PengfeiZhang <zhangfeionline@gmail.com>

__class_create() copies the pointer to the name passed as an
argument only to be used later. But there's a chance the caller
could immediately free the passed string(e.g., local variable).
This could trigger a use after free when we use class name(e.g.,
dev_uevent_name()called by device_destroy(),class_create_release()).

To be on the safe side: duplicate the string with kstrdup_const()
so that if an unaware user passes an address to a stack-allocated
buffer, we won't get the arbitrary name and crash.
