[PATCH v5 01/22] nvmem: provide nvmem_dev_name()

From: Bartosz Golaszewski <bgolaszewski at baylibre.com>

Kernel users don't have any means of checking the names of nvmem
devices. Add a routine that returns the name of the nvmem provider.

This will be useful for future nvmem notifier subscribers - otherwise
they can't check what device is being added/removed.
