Thanks. I think the only other Comedi driver with the same problem is "drivers/staging/comedi/drivers/das800.c". It passes dev->board_name as the name argument of request_irq(), but that is "cio-das802/16" for one of the boards supported by the driver.

Userspace applications can use these strings to determine the board
type, so changing the strings would break those applications.

I suggest passing the comedi driver name "cb_pcidas" to request_irq()
for now.

Oops, I meant "cb_pcidas64". But you could reach that via
dev->driver->driver_name if you want (where dev is the struct
comedi_device * parameter).
