weston-log: Introduce subscribe functionality

As described in e10c9f89: "weston-debug: Introduce...", the
subscriber object need further functionality to make use of it.

Current form of the weston-debug protocol would not need this, as it
creates underneath a new subscriber each time a client connects and
subscriptions are created/destroyed automatically with the help of
wayland protocol. For other types of streams, we require to manually
create a subscriber and to subscribe to log scopes.

This patch introduces the ability to create subscriptions, and
implicitly to subscribe to (previously created) scopes.

In the event the scope(s) are not created we temporary store the
subscription as a pending one: a subscription for which a scope doesn't
exist at the time of the subscription. When the scope for which the
subscription has been created we take care to create the subscription as

While at it the documentation bits are modified accommodate the subscribe
method and its further functionality.

Lastly, it removes an unlikely case when a scope is not created so we
avoid any kind of dandling (pending) subscription in case there is
subscription to it. We can only do something about in the destroy part
of the scope.
