This patch appears to fix the problem, though I haven't
actually tested full functionality.  That said, why is
it so restrictive to begin with?  Why not just the equivalent
of \S+ in perl-speak?  Mac-vlans have a # in their name by
default, for example, and users can rename it to anything they
want anyway...
