Hm, is it ever possible that hidpp->name is NULL? probe sets the pointer
to an array (hdev->name). Defence in depth I guess, but perhaps a
comment could clarify this?

Otherwise the changes look OK. I have tested this situation:

 1. Insert receiver
 2. Return a HID++ version for the WTP.
 3. Return -9 (ResourceError) for the device name feature request (via
    the QEMU emulation).
 4. Observe that this fails.

So maybe you could add a comment for the above and add these tags:
