+1 to the check.
My comment was on the log message, which says "failed to create mbuf pool", but
it doesn't say it is failed because of long device name.
If user knows the reason of the failure, can prevent it by providing shorter
device name.
My suggestion is update the error log message to have the reason of failure.

I think OK to have the change in this patch.
