Finding endpoints of an IPC channel is one of essential task to
understand how a user program works. Procfs and netlink socket provide
enough hints to find endpoints for IPC channels like pipes, unix
sockets, and pseudo terminals. However, there is no simple way to find
endpoints for an eventfd file from userland. An inode number doesn't
hint. Unlike pipe, all eventfd files shares one inode object.

To provide the way to find endpoints of an eventfd file, this patch
adds eventfd identifiers to the output of 'ls -l /proc/$pid/fd' like:

  ...
  lrwx------. 1 qemu qemu 64 May 20 04:49 93 -> 'anon_inode:[eventfd:130]'
  lrwx------. 1 qemu qemu 64 May 20 04:49 94 -> 'anon_inode:[eventfd:131]'
  ...

Here "130" and "131" are added as identifiers newly added.
In the case that ida_simple_get returns an error, this change doesn't add
an identifier; just use "[eventfd]" as before.
