mtd: Use mtd device name instead of mtd->name when registering nvmem device

MTD currently allows to have same partition name on different devices.
Since nvmen device registration has been added, it is not more possible
to have same partition name on different devices. We get following
logs:
sysfs: cannot create duplicate filename XXX
Failed to register NVMEM device

To avoid such issue, the proposed patch uses the mtd device name instead of
the partition name.

Fixes: c4dfa25ab307 ("mtd: add support for reading MTD devices via the nvmem API")

Hi,

With latest mtd-next branch, we get following logs on our STM32MP1 eval board.

[    2.421879] mtd mtd4: Failed to register NVMEM device

Before nvmen device registration was added, it was possible to have same partition name on different devices.
Instead of using the partition name, this patch proposes to use the MTD device name (mtdX).

Regards,
Christophe Kerello.
