gpiod_request_commit() copies the pointer to the label
passed as an argument only to be used later. But there's a
chance the caller could immediately free the passed string
(e.g., local variable). This could trigger a use after free
when we use gpio label(e.g., gpiochip_unlock_as_irq(),
gpiochip_is_requested()).

To be on the safe side: duplicate the string with
kstrdup_const() so that if an unaware user passes an address
to a stack-allocated buffer, we won't get the arbitrary label.
