[PATCH] setting the jail 'name' for use in the 'jexec' command

Jexec can accept either the JID or the jail 'Name'. If you run 'jls -v' you see ezjail does not set the name and the default of the jail is the same as the JID. Useless!

Having a 'name' on the jail allows you to use a non-moving target for jexec commands. For instance, you can restart you jails, not worry about the JID changing and can issue a command like this:

 jexec foobar tcsh

just add '_name' to your ezjail config, and patch your rc.d/ezjail file.
