relay: add buffer-only channels; useful for early logging
Allows one to create and use a channel with no associated files. Files can be initialized later. This is useful in scenarios such as logging in early code, before VFS is up. Therefore, such channels can be created and used as soon as kmem_cache_init() completed. This is needed by kmemtrace to do tracing in early kernel code.

+Buffer-only channels
+--------------------
+
+These channels have no files associated and can be created with
+relay_open(NULL, NULL, ...). Such channels are useful in scenarios such
+as when doing early tracing in the kernel, before the VFS is up. In these
+cases, one may open a buffer-only channel and then call
+relay_late_setup_files() when the kernel is ready to handle files,
+to expose the buffered data to the userspace.
