[erlang-patches] Documentation of the 'ram' mode in the 'file' module

Here's basic documentation of the ram mode in the file module: https://github.com/jbothma/otp/tree/file-ram-opt-doc

I don't know if the fact that it's a port driver should be mentioned.

I thought I'd see if this is sufficient or at least along the right path before I go too far. Generally I think it's intuitive which functions can be used with the ram mode (e.g. make_symlink wouldn't make sense). I don't know if the modes supported (or otherwise) with the ram mode should be listed explicitly.
