[Xen-devel] Name of event-channel and other devices vs. udev


Currently udev overwrites the name of the event-channel device to
/dev/xen/evtchn. This approach is about to be discontinued and needs to
be fixed on either side.

| udevd-work[549]: kernel-provided name 'evtchn' and NAME= 'xen/evtchn' 
disagree, please use SYMLINK+= or change the kernel to provide the proper name

There are several fixes for that:
- Make the kernel name the device "xen/evtchn".
- Remove the rule and convert to another name. Either /dev/evtchn, which
  is a bit to generic or something like xen-evtchn.

The first should be the more compatible one.
