rsyslog work log

Yesterday's rsyslog work log:
- added some code to expr.c - not yet to be used
- cleaned up imfile.c
- changed interface of logmsg() to make it more straightforward
- introduced a new, more powerful, message submission interface
submitMsg() in additon to logmsg()
- a first, rough implementation of imfile that is able to read files
(but does not persist or handle rotation or whatever)
- removed some left-over unnecessary dbgprintf's
- added ability to monitor file accross rotation
- fixed a race condition in DoDie() - cosmetic issue in debugging mode,
could not happen in production
- added the ability to persist current read location for the file
- some cleanup
- created initial doc for imfile plugin
- released a preview of 3.11.2 (with the file monitor)
