Changing the mtd.name may have far-reaching consequences for users who
already have mtdparts= command lines. But your concern is probably valid
for dynamically-determined bus numbers. Perhaps you can edit this patch
to only change the name when the busnum is dynamically-allocated?
This also needs a NULL check (for OOM), and you leak memory on device
