[git commit] mdev: use $DEVNAME in uevent sysfs file for device node name

commit: http://git.busybox.net/busybox/commit/?id=c3cf1e30a3022453311a7e9fe11d94c7a381640e
branch: http://git.busybox.net/busybox/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

516530c932bd17d87c9eb4347a490be051e495f4 uses $DEVNAME variable
for device node name. This is fine, but only works for hotplugging,
"mdev -s" will behave differently when DEVNAME and basename(path)
differ.

This patch extracts the DEVNAME from the uevent sysfs file in
make_device(), thus works for hot- and coldplugging; so using
the environment DEVNAME on hotplug events is no longer necessary.
