Add name to CHANNEL() function

Review Request #199 - Created March 17, 2009 and submitted

Russell Bryant
I tried to use ${CHANNEL(name)} in a dialplan the other day, and noticed that it didn't exist.  I can't think of a reason why we shouldn't add it, but figured it doesn't hurt to post it here first, just in case.
exten => printname,1,NoOp(Channel name is ${CHANNEL(name)})

*CLI> console dial printname

    -- Executing [printname@default:1] NoOp("Console/default", "Channel name is Console/default") in new stack
