    batman-adv: Fix debugfs path for renamed hardif
    batman-adv is creating special debugfs directories in the init
    net_namespace for each valid hard-interface (net_device). But it is
    possible to rename a net_device to a completely different name then the
    original one.
    It can therefore happen that a user registers a new net_device which gets
    the name "wlan0" assigned by default. batman-adv is also adding a new
    directory under $debugfs/batman-adv/ with the name "wlan0".
    The user then decides to rename this device to "wl_pri" and registers a
    different device. The kernel may now decide to use the name "wlan0" again
    for this new device. batman-adv will detect it as a valid net_device and
    tries to create a directory with the name "wlan0" under
    $debugfs/batman-adv/. But there already exists one with this name under
    this path and thus this fails. batman-adv will detect a problem and
    rollback the registering of this device.
    batman-adv must therefore take care of renaming the debugfs directories
    for hard-interfaces whenever it detects such a net_device rename.
