Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.0 66/98] leds: trigger: netdev: fix refcnt leak on interface rename

From: Rafał Miłecki <rafal@...ecki.pl>

[ Upstream commit 4cb6560514fa19d556954b88128f3846fee66a03 ]

Renaming a netdev-trigger-tracked interface was resulting in an
unbalanced dev_hold().

Example:
> iw phy phy0 interface add foo type __ap
> echo netdev > trigger
> echo foo > device_name
> ip link set foo name bar
> iw dev bar del
[  237.355366] unregister_netdevice: waiting for bar to become free. Usage count = 1
[  247.435362] unregister_netdevice: waiting for bar to become free. Usage count = 1
[  257.545366] unregister_netdevice: waiting for bar to become free. Usage count = 1

Above problem was caused by trigger checking a dev->name which obviously
changes after renaming an interface. It meant missing all further events
including the NETDEV_UNREGISTER which is required for calling dev_put().

This change fixes that by:
1) Comparing device struct *address* for notification-filtering purposes
2) Dropping unneeded NETDEV_CHANGENAME code (no behavior change)

Fixes: 06f502f57d0d ("leds: trigger: Introduce a NETDEV trigger")
