dccp: fix bug in cache allocation
This fixes a bug introduced in commit de4ef86cfce60d2250111f34f8a084e769f23b16 ("dccp: fix dccp rmmod when kernel configured to use slub", 17 Jan): the vsnprintf used sizeof(slab_name_fmt), which became truncated to 4 bytes, since slab_name_fmt is now a 4-byte pointer and no longer a 32-character array. This lead to error messages such as FATAL: Error inserting dccp: No buffer space available >> kernel: [ 1456.341501] kmem_cache_create: duplicate cache cci generated due to the truncation after the 3rd character. Fixed for the moment by introducing a symbolic constant. Tested to fix the bug.
