[libvirt] [PATCH] build: work around older systemtap header



Systemtap 1.2 <sys/sdt.h> tried to expand STAP_PROBE3 into an
initialization:
  volatile __typeof__(arg) foo = arg;
but that fails if arg was declared as 'char arg[100]'.
Rather than make all callers to PROBE deal with the stupidity
of <sys/sdt.h>, we instead make PROBE cast away the problem.
Some of this preprocessor abuse copies ideas in src/libvirt.c.

* daemon/libvirtd.h (PROBE): Add casts to all arguments, using...
(VIR_ADD_CASTS, VIR_ADD_CAST, VIR_ADD_CAST2, VIR_ADD_CAST3)
(VIR_ADD_CAST_EXPAND, VIR_ADD_CAST_PASTE, VIR_COUNT_ARGS)
(VIR_ARG5, PROBE_EXPAND): New macros.
Reported by Wen Congyang.

This took me entirely too long to come up with.  It works for me
with systemtap 1.4; if I can get feedback from systemtap 1.2 and
1.3 users, then I'll gladly apply it, and we can forget about
having to do stupid casts or other workarounds at every PROBE
client.
