Subject: [PATCH 2/2] net: Replace custom page based bitmap with IDA

Current implementation of __dev_alloc_name uses a custom bitmap of
a single page to iterate network device id's and allocate an unused id.
This leads to a upper limit of 8 * PAGE_SIZE network device id's (for
each name format i.e eth0).

This patch uses the kernel's IDA as a replacement to the page based
bitmap. This has the effect of simplifying the code and removing
the upper limit.
