Ok, V2 of this patch, taking Stephens notes into account.  Switched to using
__dev_get_by_name to avoid reference count inc/dec.


Fix a WARN_ON failure in bond_masters sysfs file

Got a report of this warning recently

bonding: bond0 is being created...

bonding: Bond creation failed.

It happens because a user space writer to bond_master can try to register and
already existing bond interface name.  Fix it by teaching bond_create to check
for the existance of devices with that name first in cases where a non-NULL name
parameter has been passed in
