[PATCH] mtd: physmap_of: fix cmdline partition method w/o linux, mtd-name

Commit d68cbdd4fb (mtd: physmap_of: allow to specify the mtd name for retro
compatiblity) broke cmdline partitioning using dev_name() in the kernel command
line.  of_property_read_string() does not touch mtd_name when linux,mtd-name is
not present in the device tree, which causes map.name to be set to a random
value.  Fix this by initializing mtd_name to NULL.
