      core: add stream_extractor module type · 3c20a6c3
      Filip Roséen authored
      These changes introduces a new module type named stream_extractor. The
      added documentation should explain when such module should be used,
      but in short it allows for extraction of data within a stream,
      effectively resulting in a new stream that refers to the extracted
      Interaction with the stream-extractor shall never happen directly,
      instead the module-backend is written in a way so that it exposes a
      stream_t to the public.
          [ access ] -> [ stream_t ] -> [ stream consumer ]
                         '- [ stream extractor ]
      Future changes are necessary in order to make modules of this type
      usable in practice, but has been split into individual commits so that
      the changes are easier to follow.
