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()
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).
