tracing: Add pipe_close interface

An ftrace plugin can add a pipe_open interface when the user opens
trace_pipe. But if the plugin allocates something within the pipe_open
it can not free it because there exists no pipe_close. The hook to
the trace file open has a corresponding close. The closing of the
trace_pipe file should also have a corresponding close.
