When the flush empty ioctl is available, use it to produce an empty
packet at the end of the snapshot, which ensures the stream intersection
feature works.

If this specific ioctl is not available, fallback on the "flush" ioctl,
which does not produce empty packets.

In that situation, there were two prior behaviors possible for
lttng-modules: earlier versions implement a "snapshot" command which
does not perform an implicit "flush_empty". In that case, the stream
intersection feature may not be reliable. In more recent lttng-modules
versions (included stable branch) which did not implement the
flush_empty ioctl, the snapshot ioctl implicitly performed a
flush_empty, which makes the stream intersection feature work, but has
side-effects on the snapshot ioctl performed by the live timer (produces
a stream of empty packets in live mode).

[ Please apply to master, 2.10, 2.9, 2.8 branches. ]
