'kasprintf()' can replace a kmalloc/strcpy/strcat sequence.
It is less verbose and avoid the use of a magic number (64).

Anyway, the underlying 'alloc_workqueue()' would only keep the 24 first
chars (i.e. sizeof(struct workqueue_struct->name) = WQ_NAME_LEN).

Instead of modifying the mlx5 driver, please change the definition of
the create_singlethread_workqueue() such that it accept a format
specifier and a variable number of arguments.

Thanks,

Bart.

Agreed. I've sent another patch serie which is more elegant.
Thanks for the feedback.
