If you're renaming the devices I'd expect the device to driver binding
to break as the device name changes - actually looking at the code again
I'm a bit depressed that the platform driver binding works at all with
this as you've not renamed the driver but you have renamed the devices
and they're still binding.  I'd have expected the match to be on a
(name, id) not on the result of rendering those down to a display name.

The whole bodge here just smells a bit to be honest, we ought to be able
to match things up without jumping through this hoop.
