New AT_... flag: AT_EMPTY_PATH

For name_to_handle_at(2) we'll want both ...at()-style syscall that
would be usable for non-directory descriptors (with empty relative
pathname).  Introduce new flag (AT_EMPTY_PATH) to deal with that and
corresponding LOOKUP_EMPTY; teach user_path_at() and path_init() to
deal with the latter.
