[PATCH 01/20] drivers_base: platform: use always ->name for uevent

From: Sebastian Andrzej Siewior
Date: Mon Aug 15 2011 - 10:52:05 EST

If id_entry is available then it is used. However if we remove first the
driver followed by the device, then the id_entry is pointing to driver's
memory which is long gone.
Since id->name and plat->name are equal there is no point in
distinguishing them.
