RootOutput writing to /dev/null
We need a way to separate all output module's data process CPU consumption from the OS file system writing CPU consumption.
A classic/traditional/preferred way to do this is to write to /dev/null.
From my point of view, I would like to be able to turn off "the
output modules writing to a specially named file which, when complete, gets renamed
using the specified mask/pattern." Then we could just have the file name be /dev/null.

'-o /dev/null' (or
'-o o1:/dev/null' for the output stream 'o1') or
'-T /dev/null' will now create ROOT files with the filename '/dev/null', and will not undergo file-renaming.
Implemented with fix commit art:231b207.
