[PATCH] relayfs: add support for relay files in other filesystems

This patch adds a couple of callback functions that allow a client to hook
into relay_open()/close() and supply the files that will be used to represent
the channel buffers; the default implementation if no callbacks are defined is
to create the files in relayfs.  This is to support the creation and use of
relay files in other filesystems such as debugfs, as implied by the fact that
relayfs_file_operations are exported.
