drivers: avoid format strings in names passed to alloc_workqueue()
For the workqueue creation interfaces that do not expect format strings, make sure they cannot accidently be parsed that way. Additionally, clean up calls made with a single parameter that would be handled as a format string. Many callers are passing potentially dynamic string content, so use "%s" in those cases to avoid any potential accidents.
