[erlang-patches] Allow rb to use any io_device/registered name instead of only filename path

hello Fredrik,
this is due to the fact that with the patch the list() is now redirect to the log file if specified.  not the case before. so i suppose the best way to deal is to export another function to do this, for instance rb:log_list() and leave list() behaviour unchanged... OTP team advice on this would be appreciated.
by the way, I have to think in running test cases before any commit... sorry !
