This patch allow to choose the desired name for the network
interface when using orinoco_cs.
It adds a new module parameter called dev_name, so it can be used
when doing an insmod.

    In general I think this is a bad idea; there is already a tool
    (nameif) to do this. And, there is no particular reason why
    orinoco_cs should have a module parameter for it, when all
    other network drivers do not.

    Also, orinoco patches should go to the orinoco maintainer.

    I will leave the patch here so anyone who wants it can have it.
