I don't quite agree on the "cosmetic".

If I recall correctly, that name is used in dapm path setup. If the name is
incorrect (truncated), some dapm elements are not switched on. I'm speaking from
memory, I'll try to browse my git repository to track it back. Notice that I'm
really busy ATM, so I don't have enough manpower to test immediatly.

I'll try to revert my patch and see the effects at the end of the next week.
