Comment (by segher):

 > It was used to drop the "name" in the structure completely, thus saving
 a couple of bytes for every device. Since romcc was easily bloating auto.c
 up to 64k, the savings can be considered non-existent

 it doesn't take much space, and the (potentially) improved diagnostics
 are worth it /me thinks.
