[PATCH 03/10] staging: comedi: acl7225b: cleanup dev->board_name usage

The comedi core initializes the dev->board_name before calling the
driver (*attach) function. There is not reason to reinitialize it
in the driver.

Use the dev->board_name when doing the request_resource() instead
of the open-coded string.
