On systems with multiple ina2xx chips it is impossible to find out which
iio device is which one based on probe order. That's why it is necessary to
setup better name based on possition.
The patch is reusing dev_name which is setup by core with client->name.

name char array was setup to 128 byte length to correspond the same name
length by HID device.

Before this patch:
iio:device9: ina226 (buffer capable)
iio:device9: ina226-3-004a (buffer capable)

Could this break existing user space code that's just looking for just ina226.
I2c bus numbers aren't all that great at id'ing devices either. It's better than
nothing but depending on what cards we have plugged into our system the same device gets
a different bus number.

Also id->name can be used as prefix. On ina226 output is the same.

Also I am happy to change that space for name will be dynamicky allocated
to save a space if needed.
