This adds an overly long line.  That being said this behavior is pretty
normal for kernel APIs, so I'm not even sure we need it at all.

and this one is for sure completley useless.  Same for all the other
similar ones.

But taking one step back:  All instances implement create_buf_file
and remove_buf_file, which makes sense as that is the prime aim
of these methods.  So there is no point in making those optional.
subbuf_start_callback is overriden by two instances, so making that
optional totally makes sense.  buf_mapped and buf_unmapped are
never overriden, so they should be removed entirely.

More importantly there is no case that passes a NULL rchan_callbacks,
which makes complete sense as it wouldn't even create a file.  So
remove that case as well and just replace it with a sanity check in

Please also add a patch to mark all rchan_callbacks instances const
while you're at it.
