Subject: [PATCH 2/4] staging: comedi: addi_apci_1564: remove unnecessary dev->board_name initialization

The dev->board_name is now initialized by the comedi core before calling
the(*attach) or (*auto_attach) function in a driver. As long as the driver
does no additional probing, it's no longer necessary initialize the board_name.
