Add support for backpipes

Linux has the concept of pipes within the file system that can be used to create backpipes.

The command in linux is:
mkmod backpipe p
nc -l -p 80 0<backpipe | nc 22 1>backpipe

That creates a listener that connects its stdin to the backpipe (0<) and forwards stdout to the client (|). The client gets its stdin from the pipe and directs its stdout to the backpipe (1>).
