This patch simply makes the tilegx net driver call request_irq with a
non-null name. It makes the output in /proc/interrupts more obvious, but
also helps tools that don't expect to find null there.

I am not sure if this patch will get picked up directly by David Miller
of it should go through Chris Metcalf's tree first. Hopefully it is
simple enough that it can get merged directly.
