[ Upstream commit c843b382e61b5f28a3d917712c69a344f632387c ]

The jc42 driver passes I2C client's name as hwmon device name. In case
of device tree probed devices this ends up being part of the compatible
string, "jc-42.4-temp". This name contains hyphens and the hwmon core
doesn't like this:

jc42 2-0018: hwmon: 'jc-42.4-temp' is not a valid name attribute, please fix

This changes the name to "jc42" which doesn't have any illegal
