ipw2x00: remove the right /proc/net entry
Commit 27ae60f8f7aa ("ipw2x00: replace "ieee80211" with "libipw" where appropriate") changed DRV_NAME to be "libipw", but didn't properly fix up the places where it was used to specify the name for the /proc/net/ directory. For backwards compatibility reasons, that directory name remained "ieee80211", but due to the DRV_NAME change, the error case printouts and the cleanup functions now used "libipw" instead. Which made it all fail badly. For example, on module unload as reported by Randy: WARNING: at fs/proc/generic.c:816 remove_proc_entry+0x156/0x35e() name 'libipw' because it's trying to unregister a /proc directory that obviously doesn't even exist. Clean it all up to use DRV_PROCNAME for the actual /proc directory name. Reported-and-tested-by: Randy Dunlap <randy.dunlap@oracle.com> Cc: Pavel Roskin <proski@gnu.org> Cc: John W.
