[Libguestfs] hivex patch to solve device or resource busy error when access Windows directory while open system hive



I have found a strange issue related to hivex/ntfs-3g. After opening a system hive on a volume mounted by ntfs-3g, any access to the Windows directory results device or resource busy error. The patch below fix it by closing the hive file handle in hivex_open() call in the writable path because the handle never been used after its content been read into memory.
