  Fix possible panic when creating VirtIO console dev aliases

  Since we have no control over the name, the MAKEDEV_CHECKNAME flag must be
  used to return an error on an invalid (to devfs) name instead of panicing.

  r305900 that originally added this feature also introduced a few other bugs:
    - Proper locking not performed
    - Theoretically broke the expectation that the control event buffer would
      not span more than one pages, but did not update the CTASSERT that was
      in place to prevent this. However, since the struct
      and the bulk buffer together were quite small, this could not have

  Also workaround an QEMU VirtIO spec violation in that it includes the NUL
  terminator in the buffer length when the spec says it is not included.
