Fix Input Name Bug Splunk Add-on for Google Cloud Platform

When using the Splunk Add-on for Google Cloud Platform the input name cannot contain slashes.

"GCP Cloud Pub/Sub Input" <== This will break with the following error.

ERROR ExecProcessor - message from "python /opt/splunk/etc/apps/Splunk_TA_google-cloudplatform/bin/google_cloud_pubsub.py" OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/modinputs/google_cloud_pubsub/GCP Cloud Pub/Sub Input.lock'

Special characters should be disallowed in the input name on that add-on. Additionally, the input name should be properly escaped.

P.S.
Please update the horrible, horrible documentation around how to configure that add-on.

The answer is more or less in the question. But I was hoping this would be an avenue to help others troubleshoot issues they were having with the add-on as well as get the issue some visibility with the add-on maintainers.

@timonix Join us on slack (splk.it/slack) and find the #gsuite_app channel, if there is something Google related that you need, no promises, but I've been thinking of doing pubsub for G Suite if some other app doesn't do it (or doesn't do it well)
