Could you please describe the issue encountered in more detail
(what the old device name is needed for)?

It seems that 'dev' can be used instead of 'devfreq->dev.parent'.

Error values are not encoded into pointer returned by dev_name()
(drivers/base/ code is only checking for pointer being NULL).

pointer returned by devfreq_add_device(), it should be replaced by:
err = -EINVAL;
