ntdll: Fix name validation for pipes (bug #28995).

Pipes have more relaxed naming requirements compared to files.

MSDN documentation for CreateNamedPipe() says:

"...must have the following form:


The pipename part of the name can include any character other than a backslash,
including numbers and special characters. The entire pipe name string can be up
to 256 characters long. Pipe names are not case sensitive".

This patch:

1. modifies ntdll pipe test to use ">" character in the pipe name
(that is illegal for a file name), so the
case of special characters in the name is now tested.

2. modifies wine_nt_to_unix_file_name() in ntdll to not check pipe
names for file-illegal

Checking for a backslash is absent, since adding it breaks some Wine internals.
This absence won't cause any problems for valid Win32 apps.
