kobject: fix up kobject_set_name to use kvasprintf
Kay pointed out that kobject_set_name was being very stupid, doing two allocations for every call, when it should just be using the kernel function kvasprintf() instead. This change adds the internal kobject_set_name_vargs() function, which other follow-on patches will be using. Cc: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@vrfy.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
