bug with LISP device in CMU MacLisp

LOAD does not follow the convention of looking for a PPN property on the
LISP symbol when passed that symbol as a device spec.  This causes
annoying lossage in CMU MacLisp because of packages like SETF and MACAID.
SETF does (LOAD '((LISP) MACAID)) to get MACAID from [C380ML5P], but LOAD
fumbles and generates an "IMPROPERLY FORMED NAMELIST" error.

Similarly, MACAID tries to (LOAD '((LISP) MLMAC)) and fails.
