That's fine. But we have to fix extcon_dev_register() too, to not use device
names right? We have to warn extcon users not to use device names right?

node name in OMAP dts is already 'palmas_usb'. But since we were not setting
'edev.name' in extcon-palmas.c, extcon_dev_register used device name of palmas
(palmas_usb.7 in my case). So extcon-palmas.c needs the fix.
