I believe that the "nr" abbreviation comes from the German language.
(correct me if I'm wrong)

Perhaps the abbreviation, "no" is more correct, since it is based on
the English language, but to me this is of no significance, since v4l
uses the "nr" abbreviation and this is globally understood.

If Oliver perfers "adapter_no" then lets go with it.  Otherwise, it's
fine as-is.
