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.
