The shmem 'name' usually mean the ivshmem device name/id, I think we shouldn't change it in migration.
However, here we use the auto generated 'alias name' as device name/id instead.
Add a new optional attribute for easier understanding what we changed, no other reason.
Update the shmem 'name' will also work, I can support it in V3.
