Ok, here is a new version.

This patch corrects a cosmetic bug in the via-velocity driver which 
bothered me for some time.

The messages printed during device init look like the following:

[    8.486422] eth%d: set value of parameter Wake On Lan options to 0
                  ^^!
[    8.487340] eth0: VIA Networking Velocity Family Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

Note the unresolved format string.

dev->name is unavailable before register_netdev, so use 
dev_driver_string(&pdev->dev), which is also consistent with other 
drivers.

"char *devname" parameters had to be converted to "const char *devname" to 
be consistent with dev_driver_string return value.
