The MAC device name can now be set within DTS file instead of always
being "ethX". This is helpful for DSA to clearly label the DSA master
device and distinguish it from DSA slave ports.

For example, some devices, such as the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter X, may have
ports labeled ethX. Labeling the master GMAC with a different prefix
than DSA ports helps with clarity.

It is better to use alloc_netdev_mqs() so you get validation the name
is unique.

It doesn't look like the name validation happens until the netdev is
registered, and it does not get registered at alloc, right?

I do agree that it's better to use the correct name in the first place
instead of renaming, regardless, so using alloc_netdev_mqs() seems
like a better solution - I'll make the change.
