Some commands beside lttng-enable-channel have the side-effect of
creating a domain. For instance, the lttng-track and lttng-untrack
commands will implicitly create their target domains if they don't
exist. Thus, it is not unexpected for a domain to exist without

Currently, tracking process attributes in the user space and kernel
domains will result in a warning being printed when lttng-status
(or lttng-list `the_session`) is invoked.

Example output:
Tracing session arielle_bolduc: [inactive]
    Trace output: /home/jgalar/lttng-traces/arielle_bolduc-20200323-191128

=== Domain: Linux kernel ===

Tracked process attributes
  Process IDs: all
  Virtual Process IDs: 12365, 526, 41
  User IDs: all
  Virtual User IDs: all
  Group IDs: all
  Virtual Group IDs: all

Warning: No kernel channel
=== Domain: User space ===

Buffering scheme: per-user

Tracked process attributes
  Virtual Process IDs: 12365, 526, 41
  Virtual User IDs: all
  Virtual Group IDs: all

The warning is removed since it can only confuse users.
