Bluetooth: Fix the creation of hdev->name

Set a size limit of 8 bytes of the written buffer to "hdev->name"
including the terminating null byte, as the size of "hdev->name" is 8
bytes. If an id value which is greater than 9999 is allocated,
then the "snprintf(hdev->name, sizeof(hdev->name), "hci%d", id)"
function call would lead to a truncation of the id value in decimal

Set an explicit maximum id parameter in the id allocation function call.
The id allocation function defines the maximum allocated id value as the
maximum id parameter value minus one. Therefore, HCI_MAX_ID is defined
as 10000.
