Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] staging: rtl8192u: fix rmmod warn when wlan0 is renamed
There are 4 debug files created under /proc/net/[Devname]. Devname could
be wlan0 initially, however it could be renamed later to e.g. enx00e04c000002.
This will cause problem during debug file teardown since it uses
netdev->name which is no longer wlan0. To solve this problem, add a
notifier to handle device renaming.

Also, due to this is purely for debuging as files are created read only,
move this to debugfs like other NIC drivers do instead of using procfs.
