The exif tool should use exif_tag_get_name_in_ifd, instead of exif_tag_get_name, because there is overlap in the tags IDs in the "normal" and "GPS" namespaces.

Two GPS tags will be incorrectly named if exif_tag_get_name is used, due to the overlap.

See https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&atid=112272&aid=1581302&group_id=12272 for additional background info.
